Tony Blair the Musical

Tony Blair: The Musical looks like it will be a cracking show. But they need your help!
The Show will run between 1st and 27th August at the Gilded Balloon as part of the 2007 Edinburgh festival Fringe, with London previews in July. And here is a message fron the producers...

''...By now you're no doubt thinking "they've got a great show with great songs, a great team with buckets of talent, they've even got a very pretty website - what could the people behind Tony Blair - the Musical possibly be lacking?"

Well…there is one thing. You see, one of the problems of Tony Blair's government is that it hasn't made a huge amount of provision for putting on plays about Tony Blair. Shortsighted of them? We agree! And delighted though we are to see all that arts funding being poured into the 2012 Olympic games, we could really do with a bit of cash ourselves.

It struck us as more than a little ironic that the Labour party must also have been short of money itself several times. And we asked ourselves again and again: what would Tony do?
Which is why we're giving you this unique opportunity to buy your very own peerage today! Our extremely reasonably priced packages are as follows:

£10 to become a Lord
*£25 to become an Earl
*£50 to become a Duke*''

In return for your (cough cough) "donation", you will receive the following:
- A certificate confirming your new status as a peer of the realm.

- Exclusive offers and discounts on certain performances of Tony Blair - the Musical
.- Priority booking for London previews.
- Invitations to special events at which you can meet and mingle with other peers of the realm.
- A fuzzy warm feeling at being part of a historical piece of musical theatre.

Naturally we prefer cash, but a cheque made out to Tony Blair the Musical will do.
Names and titles will be handed out pretty much at random unless you specify if there is a particular part of the realm of which you wish to be a peer.
We look forward to helping you on your way towards a greater air of self-importance and the life that befits a man with a title! (Or a woman, of course. We are fighting for a new Britain.)''

That sounds funny. Too bad I won't be in Edinburgh in August.
