Parody of Mercy Adoption with All Malawian Cast Hits Stage. My Guess is Madonna Won't Like It.

Madonna_adoption_malawi Hey, remember when Madonna set out to adopt Mercy from Malawia but she was delayed by the Malawian courts and it didn't look good for her request to go through?

Then all of the sudden she got the go-ahead and you could almost hear the question popping into heads everywhere "Was that because she is a rich celebrity?"

Yes, well that question certainly crossed the minds of more than just celebrity reporters and now that reaction has translated into a parody stage show, "Mercy Madonna Of Malawi". The play tackles contentious issues like financial influence and loss of culture in foreign adoptions.

Added bonus: the show totally mocks Madonna and her music

I love it already.

The show includes all Malawian actors depicting why Madonna came to that country to adopt children, the court events surrounding the case, and Malawian reaction to the rulings. All done while singing parody versions of her songs like "'Last night I dreamed of Malawi' (La Isla Bonita). Nicely done.

Another bonus: the guy playing Madonna in the parody looks wa-a-a-y better than Madge herself has looked in ages.

One of the actors in the show had the pleasure of performing for Madge when she was in town buying children for one of her adoptions and claims her reaction to the play about African cultural identity was 'money is the answer to everything'. Yup, that sounds like the Madonna I know.

I've always wondered about Madonna's adoptions since it appears that her money influenced and bent the rules when so many adoptions that I've seen friends go through are long, painful, exhausting legal loopty-loops that don't always end well. And then I get all boom boom in the head over how money and celebrity cred makes them different from us and *head explodes*

The show has already run in Malawai, plus had its world première at the Edinburgh Fringe yesterday and runs all month. One of the actors who knows one of Madonna's dancers sent an email inviting her majesty Madonna to the show in Edinburgh but strangely enough, they haven't heard back from her camp.

But just in case she is aware of the show, I recommend all cast members sleep with one eye open. Rumour is she can crack walnuts without even flinching using just her elbow.
