Journalists from print and broadcast news satirize the political and cultural scene in the Oklahoma City Gridiron Club’s show, now at Stage Center. This is great fun and good theater, in support of a worthy cause: college and university scholarships. The show begins this week on Wednesday, and continues Friday and Saturday nights. The curtain goes up at 7:45 p.m.
Jon Haque, one of five new Gridiron performers, hilariously sends up Dennis Kucinich, whose campaign for president epitomizes hopefuls who “couldn’t get no traction” with voters. Later, Haque portrays state Auditor Jeff McMahan as an Okie Bob Marley, singing “I didn’t do it” to the tune of “I shot the sheriff.” Newcomers Jon Barry, Megan Glyckherr, Ashley Barcum and Erin Boeckman bring good voices and vitality to the fray.
