WHAT IS TRUMPED: AN ALTERNATIVE MUSICAL?
Originally written as a two-act show in 2018 with a further two acts written in 2020, TRUMPED: An Alternative Musical is an original stage play that satirizes the election and presidency of Donald Trump (full synopsis). Following a live streamed reading in August 2018, a small team formed to work to bring the show to the Off-Broadway stage in New York.
While efforts did not yield the result we were hoping for, the TRUMPED team is confident that with a new approach and a new format to bring the show to audiences, with the right team, we can still deliver a vital piece of comedic theatre to the people of America and the world, all at the expense of President Trump.
