Political Cabaret WHAT THE F*CK IS GOING ON?: A NEW MUSICAL Returns For One-Night-Only Concert
THE GREEN ROOM 42 PRESENTS "What The F*ck Is Going On?: A New Musical," for one night only! Fresh out from a highly successful concert performance at Feinstein's/54 Below, award-winning composer Zach Spound brings the world of contemporary journalism to life as we follow a young woman's journey to the heart of the Russia Investigation. Along the way, familiar figures including Rachel Maddow, Robert Mueller, Kamala Harris, James Comey, and Sally Yates help put the pieces together by telling their stories. Part cabaret, part rock concert, and part investigative journalism, it's a timely, one-of-a-kind musical experience that, in an era when asking questions is an act of resistance, celebrates the necessity badass-ery of America's journalists.
Featuring: Lauren Baez (The Petrified Forest), Stefanie Brown (Wicked), Peter Dunn (Gays: The Series), Clarissa Marie Ligon, Chris Meissner (Grease Live!), Amanda Shechtman (Cruel Intentions: The Musical), Tristan J.
