Here in the first three photos you see the White House elegantly (and appropriately!) directed for Christmas by First Lady Melania Trump. It was resplendent!

"I think it was President Reagan who said, 'We're from the government. We're here to help!'"
Here's the actual quote:

It isn't often these days that a show comes to Broadway with an original story and original music and lyrics -- not the musicalization of a book or a movie or a previously produced play. No, we're talking something completely original. And that's exactly what Shucked is -- a show which was in development for many years and was finally brought to Broadway where it was always meant to be.
We saw a recent performance and absolutely loved it! Featuring a book by Tony Award winner (Tootsie), a score by the Grammy® Award-winning songwriting team of and , and directed by Tony Award winner (Hairspray), this corn-fed, corn-bred American musical says it's "sure to satisfy your appetite for great musical theater." And it must be doing something right because it's enjoying a successful run at the Nederlander Theater (through January 14) and will soon be touring throughout the country.
Shucked is about a small town that depends totally on its vibrant corn crop -- until the crop, mysteriously, stops producing the town's lifeblood. What happened and why? And how does Shucked get it mojo back? Well, that's what this corn huskin' tale is all about.
Yeah, Shucked is corny. But it's also clever, surprising, timely and laugh out loud funny. You'll have to listen closely because the one-liners (even in the songs) come at you faster that a road runner. If you saw the scene from Shucked on the recently televised Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade you know what we're talking about. And Alex Newell totally brings the house down when she sings the defiant, tuneful "Independently Owned." In fact, all of the members of the young, exuberant Shucked cast are wonderful.
And here's the thing we loved most about this show -- Shucked is not overly impressed with itself. It doesn't pretend to be delving into the meaning of life. It doesn't try to be slick or sophisticated. It aims for down home authenticity, and it succeeds. But please don't get the idea that Shucked is dim witted -- far from it! The production values are first rate and this show provides a good dose of social commentary while managing to nonetheless serve it all up with a plenty of heart.
Be sure to get tickets when it some to a city near you!

South Carolina crowd goes crazy for Donald Trump. Could Joe Biden get this reception at any college football stadium in America? pic.twitter.com/wLTJ2eMls3— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) November 26, 2023
