“Obama On My Mind” – knew it was coming, but from London??

Barack Obama musical: “Obama On My Mind”

Okay, I knew it would appear sooner or later, but I never thought that a musical about Barrack Obama (and his campaign) would first be created in London!  It is tentatively called “Obama On My Mind.  Says CBS News:

Teddy Hayes, an American playwright currently living in London, has been inspired to pen a new and distinctive musical based upon Barack Obama’s presidential campaign”

From YouTube:

Personally, I think it looks pretty lame, but then I’ve been to many a play reading where the beginning and end product are drastically different.  (i.e., I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt).   I’m just wondering if Joe the Plumber will have a song of his own (or a duet with Sarah Palin).
