This “alternative facts” dark musical comedy takes place backstage in the green room the night before the big 1933 Nuremberg Rally. Hitler is on his deathbed and it’s up to his four companions to make sure the show goes on. Joseph Goebbels, Rudolf Hess, Ernst Röhm, and Leni Riefenstahl conspire to prop up a Hitler impersonator to take the place of their Führer. But at such short notice, their only choice is a drunk, gay, Jewish cabaret singer.
