Mario Lopez, who starred in the revival of "A Chorus Line" on Broadway and hosts "Extra" provides the call to action to vote this November.
Written by Seth Bisen-Hersh and R.C. Staab, "Enough Already" is from the musical, The Diamond as Big as the Ritz, based on the satiric F. Scott Fitzgerald 1920s novella of the same name about a rich paranoid family hiding their wealth in a secret Montana location. The video is directed by Aaron Galligan-Stierle, cinematography by Jonathan Whittaker and Haley Ricciardi and is produced by Kristy Cates, Bisen-Hersh and Staab.
Bisen-Hersh says, "The song was originally written as an anthemic epilogue about a story that's almost 100 years old. Only recently, did we realize the relevance of the message to our highly-charged political climate and decided to use the song - almost exactly as written - for a online message to remind everyone to make a difference this November at the ballot box."
