Obama: The Musical Coming Soon

Move over Paris and Britney, there's a new celebrity in town. Barack Obama has not only inspired an entire nation to have faith in our country again, he's also inspired a musical.

“Obama On My Mind,” a musical with book, music and lyrics by American crime writer and filmmaker Teddy Hayes, will make its premiere at the Hens and Chickens Theater in Islington, playbill.com reports.

The new musical is described as "a humorous look at the weird and wonderful world behind the scenes of a small Obama campaign office and the larger than life characters who make the wheels turn, the cogs whirr and bring in the votes."

The musical will feature a mixture of "pop, rock, gospel and jazz songs." It's scheduled to begin performances on March 3 and make its official opening on March 5 and last through March 21st.

There's no word yet on casting or who will play Obama. Who do you think would be great for the role?
