Tony Blair will get some help from Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival this year as he heads into retirement after 10 years as British Prime Minister.

The festival, which runs Aug. 5-27, will feature a musical in which the audience joins Mr. Blair, his successor Gordon Brown and U.S. President George W. Bush together with a barber shop quartet for “There ain’t no Party like a Labour Party.”

Another musical deals with ASBOs, the government’s anti-social behaviour orders for unruly youth.

“You’ve got ASBOs, the Musical, but also you’ve got something called American Poodle, a not particularly complimentary exploration of the special relationship [between Messrs. Blair and Bush],” said director Paul Gudgin.

“There are, I think, a huge number of shows which are both funny.”
