Last year, the gay vlogger-comedian Randy Rainbow’s Broadway song parodies and satirical, manipulated “interviews” with political figureheads turned him into a bona fide viral video star. They’ve racked up millions of views on YouTube and Facebook – popular posts include a twist on a The Music Man ditty, “Trump Trouble,” and a Trump-ified Mary Poppins number, “Braggadocious!” – while he also contributes a series titled “Chewing The Scenery” for BroadwayWorld.com. Last fall, Rainbow was enlisted to write a pro-Hillary parody of West Side Story’s “Officer Krupke” for the reunited Will & Grace cast to deliver.
Now that Trump is in office, the material, obviously, isn’t drying up. Check out this hysterical new video “Alternative Facts” to the tune of “Jellicle Cats.”
