From Bush to Obama: Broadway Makes the Transition

So far I can think of two ways in which Broadway productions are recognizing the departure of Geroge Bush and the ascent of Barack Obama.

The comedy The 39 Steps includes a parody of Barack Obama's sloganeering, and Avenue Q is testing alternative lyrics to the line "George Bush—is only for now" in the song "For Now" (offered below).

Thanks to Musical Maven Myra for the Avenue Q lead.
