It has been proven that the Russians interfered in the 2016 presidential campaigns on both sides, but Donald Trump himself has been exonerated of wrongdoing by Robert Mueller's 448-page report, which clears Trump of collusion and obstruction of justice, both impeachable offenses. Dealing with the Russians has always been a sticky-wicket for Americans, who generally see the Soviets as their avowed enemies in the world today. Colluding with Russians, therefore, was seen as a treasonable act, and the President "has never been happier" that he has been vindicated of that charge in what he has repeatedly called a Democratic "Witchhunt".

The show is divided into 13 Scenes, with dance numbers for children, youth, elders, males, females and the entire company -- "an experience that's joyful." Furlong and Westerby of the Matthew Westerby Company are already planning their next projects!
