Barack Obama’s Fight Against Vampires Set to Music

LTB logo

You may know that Barack Obama was president of the Harvard Law Review, but you probably didn’t know that he then became engaged in a fight against a secret society of student vampires.  Now that story is not only being told, there is a musical version.

Barackula – The Musical is . . . well, here’s their synopsis:

Barackula is a short political horror rock musical about young Barack Obama having to stave off a secret society of vampires at Harvard when he was inducted into presidency at the Harvard Law Review in 1990. Obama (Justin Sherman) finds that he must convince the vampire society that opposing political philosophies can coexist or else the society may transform Obama to the dark side.

The musical, which is also being made into a short film, is described as "reminiscent [of] Michael Jackson’s Thriller [with] a slight infusion of Jesus Christ Superstar . . . ."  The "dancing Harvard student vampires" are said to be a highlight.

There does not appear to be any actual connection to Harvard.
