After a sold-out run at The Second City, Rod Blagojevich Superstar! found a new home at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater at Navy Pier.
The show’s style is a nod to popular rock operas of the 1970s like Jesus Christ Superstar and Godspell. In this play, a fictionalized Rod Blagojevich and his wife play Jesus and Mary Magdalene, followed by a merry band of apostles (Roland Burris, Patrick Fitzgerald, Dick Mell and Lisa Madigan).
The most unique aspects of this play is that it is updated as news about the Blago craziness unfolds and, after the show, a 20-minute political comedy set is performed, based entirely off of YOUR suggestions!
The show is about 1 hour 30 minutes (including intermission) and runs Thursdays through Sundays until June 14.
