Who's Your Baghdaddy? or, How I Started The Iraq War.

By A.D. Penedo and Marshall Pailet

Directed by Meghan Randolph

Baghdaddy is a subversive musical in the style of Adam McKay (The Big Short, Vice). It tells the story of the buildup to the War in Iraq, focusing on an Iraqi refugee (and con artist) codenamed Curveball, the people he interacted with, and what became the biggest CIA blunder in modern history. Filled with bangin' songs, rich history, dark humor, and layered characters, this piece explores how we take responsibility, how we treat people we suspect, and how ambition run amok can spell disaster.
