Bill Clinton: The Opera

In the past couple of years there has been a concerted effort to destroy the theater. First an Obama stage horror called Hope: The Musical, and now an opera about Bill Clinton:

Everything sounds better when set to music, though on might argue that President Bill Clinton’s life story has been operatic even without the addition of music. Nevertheless, auditions for Billy Blythe are being held today in Little Rock Arkansas “a coming of age story set in the late 1950’s in Hot Springs.”

According to reports, the opera “will explain how the natural state helped shape and mold the man we now know as President Bill Clinton.”

I know it’s tempting to come up with alternative titles, like “Chokelahoma”; “William, (I’m Gonna) Tell”; “La Bloheme”; “Cigaro”; “A Midterm Night’s Dream” or “Phantom of the McDonalds,” but let’s keep it classy and avoid such a temptation.

Insiders tell me that the aria featuring Clinton’s character lamenting his prediction that the public would embrace Obamacare is even more moving than the overture to Billy Carter’s “Beerthoven.”
