Baghdaddy-Musical-Off-Broadway-Show-Tickets-176-050517

The NY Times hailed Baghdaddy as “an important, cunning rock solid musical comedy with a terrible title.” The show begins in a church basement, where disgraced spies, along with the unwitting audience, gather for a support group meeting. The action soon shifts to Frankfurt Airport, where a mysterious Iraqi defector claims he built secret Iraqi bio-weapons labs. At CIA headquarters, our other characters are contending with their own ambitions, rash decisions, inflexible bosses, unrequited affections and unremitting boredom, when a fax arrives from Germany, and with it a golden opportunity. If the defector’s story holds up, it will be the ticket out of the basement and into a corner office. It’s all fun and games until the looming cataclysm changes everything.

“After a matriarch’s death, the women in the family clean Grandma’s attic and find love and old memories packed away, and in the process, hit tunes that trace the history of black women, from the trials of the 1930s through the Girl Groups of the 60s to the empowerment of the 90s. Songs include “Oh, Happy Day,” “Mama Said,” “I Will Survive,” “Tyrone,” “I am Not My Hair” and “A Woman’s Worth.”

Moving from the days of Jim Crow to the present,  the narrative is presented through songs like Strange Fruit, Society’s  Child, Taint Nobody’s Business, right up to the present with more  contemporary songs of worth and independence – I am Not My Hair by  India Arie, Alicia Keyes’ A Woman’s Worth, Golden by Jill  Scott.
