Branson, MO—The American conservative radio and television host, author, entrepreneur, and political commentator Glen Beck recently announced that he is opening a theatre in Branson where he will host daily shows for live audiences. The news follows Beck’s comes just one month after he left the Fox News Channel on June 30th, 2011.
Beck’s company, Mercury Radio Arts, a multimedia production company that produces content for radio, television, publishing, the stage, and the Internet found that the Branson market was a perfect fit for his conspiracy theories and incendiary rhetoric for enthusiastic audiences.
A local Branson t-shirt salesman, George Filunus said, “Beck’s is a constitutional stalwart defending traditional American values,” as he held up a new t-shirt design that said “Back in Beck, Branson, MO”. The Glen Beck Theatre Show, as the new stage production will be known, will be housed in a new complex to be known as the Restoring Restoration Theatre located off HWY 76.
Since 2005, Beck has toured American cities twice a year, presenting a one-man stage show as a “wildly imaginative performer, a man who weds the operatic impulses of the demagogue to the grim mutterings of the conspiracy theorist”. Beck says he is looking forward to having a permanent gig in the heart of the Ozarks however he is concerned about the theatre going up across the street with a sign that simply says, “The Daily Theatre”. “I swear to God almighty, if John Stewart is hosting that show I’m not sure what I’ll do,” said Beck.
