Two-time Emmy nominee Randy Rainbow released this week his first-ever collaboration with two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone. The new parody video/song, “If Donald Got Fired,” is based on “If Momma Was Married” from the classic Broadway musical Gypsy, written by Stephen Sondheim and Jule Styne.
“This is a dream come true,” Rainbow said. “It’s no secret that I have always been obsessed with Patti LuPone. She’s been an idol of mine since childhood, so I still can’t believe this actually happened!”
“I’m so thrilled to be part of Randy’s satiric brilliance,” said LuPone. “I wish I could have lived up to it, but he’s in a stratosphere all his own.”
The video also serves as a fundraiser for the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), a nonprofit organization founded in 1920 “to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.”
Additionally, a digital single is also available now from Broadway Records at all major digital music retailers. The single features original cover art by beloved Broadway illustrator Justin “Squigs” Robertson.
