Judy Doomed Us All is a gritty, political, Americana musical wrapped in a tumbleweed and served on a tablecloth from Party City. Set on the 4th of July in a reimagined 1980s, a fictionalized Nancy Reagan continues her Grand National Tour across the Heartland. As Nancy and her joke writer, Anthony Dolan, roll into a small town in Kansas, a massive tornado approaches, leaving the two political figures trapped amongst the cornfields and corner stores. The story unfolds as two best friends, Judy and Blinker, leave the shelter of their basement-turned-clubhouse and find themselves struggling to understand what growing up means when your resources are limited. Could they be like Nancy Reagan? Or will they be like the outsiders- A future rock star named Dorothy and her two best friends Gertie and Scarecrow who live in a dilapidated house outside of town, trying to stay afloat amongst the decay. As the storm approaches, we come to learn that good intentions don’t always lead to a good result. The tornado is not the only thing that could destroy the town.
