Strange, because we usually wait until we’re wheels-down at DIA to ask for financial and moral forgiveness.
When a religiously driven man in his mid-60s opened up to a reporter and vocalized exactly what everyone expects out of a Louisianan recluse from the sticks, the world went ball-shit crazy about the offensive comments. That event, and the accompanying online outrage, pretty much solidified the end of Duck Dynasty’s reign as one of the most powerful brands in the nation … or would it?
The new “Duck Commander Musical” — appearing indefinitely at the Rio Crown Theater in Las Vegas, NV* — says otherwise. While critics’ reviews of said musical aren’t the most flattering, the storyline itself apparently reflects on Phil’s comments and acts as the Robertson’s way to ask for forgiveness — complete with fart jokes, amplified duck sounds and adapted-for-stage beard costumes.
Strange, because we usually wait until we’re wheels-down at DIA to ask for financial and moral forgiveness. The sin always stays in Vegas, as it should.
*UPDATE: Via reports released this morning (May 4), it turns out the musical's legacy will be cut short, ending only a month after its initial performance. The team behind the show has stated in an interview it will be looking at "several possible opportunities for the next stage in the life of the show, including extended sit-down engagements in interested cities, as well as a national tour."
… uh, huh — we'll see if this thing ever gets two feet off the ground …
