President's New Clothes

Book By: Stephen Murray
Play #: 6201
Pages: 45 pgs
Cast: 4 m, 12 w, 5 flexible, chorus

President William Lee is too busy with international politics to worry about whether his striped tie clashes with his plaid pants and argyle socks. His devoted wife is understanding but the media sure take a stab at his wardrobe. So do his election opponent, Horace Grinchley, and Horace's overly-ambitious campaign manager, Myrna Snerd. The two get several people to pose as wardrobe consultants to strip President Lee down to his "bare" essentials, and have him deliver a nationally televised debate in a suit only visible to loyal constituents. Add to the campaign fever a salami-hoarding terrorist, an environmental fanatic, plus a patriotic, chaotic chorus of reporters, White House staff, and secret service agents. This musical comedy is sure to rank high in the audience polls with the witty score, including the bluesy "Don't Mess with the Press," the heart-felt "He's Just a Man," the rousing "Best Dressed President," and the finale, "What's Inside."
