UTOPIA - THE IOWA MUSICAL REVUE

About the Show

"Utopia - The Iowa Musical Revue" - Conceived & Written by Robert John Ford

 

"Utopia - The Iowa Musical Revue" features a wide variety of original sketches and parody songs that celebrate - and poke a little fun at the unique people, places, and traditions of the great state of Iowa.  To date, more than 60 songs and sketches have been presented in five unique versions of the show, and new songs and sketches are being constantly adding, guaranteeing something new for audiences to see at each performance.   "Utopia" is the perfect entertainment option for Iowans who like to laugh at themselves and visitors who want a little taste of the Hawkeye State.  "You will laugh.  Hard." - The Des Moines Register
