Stephen Harper: The Musical
Or, How to Survive and Thrive in the Dying Days of the Empire of Oil
The one-man show is the production of James Gordon, a singer-songwriter with 40 albums to his credit over a thirty-year international career. James’ puppeteering and humourous lyrics mock everything from the Senate scandal and the Tories’ non-debated omnibus bills, to public service cuts, unemployment, climate change, our overpriced fighter jets, Canada’s economic decline, and Harper’s sketchy deals with China. It’s a theatrical indictment of the government that progressive Canadians love to hate, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Coming up to an election, it’s a memorable checklist of why Harper has to go.
