Keating! is a sung-through musical which portrays the political career of former Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating. Keating was Prime Minister between 1991 and 1996, it was written by Casey Bennetto, inspired to write the show by his disappointment at the results of the 2004 federal election, which saw Howard's Coalition government returned for a fourth term. The musical takes a humorous, satirical tone and presents a positive image of Keating while criticising the Howard government. Bennetto describes the show as "ridiculously pro-Paul Keating". Performed by musical group the Drowsy Drivers, the show achieved rapid success from its low-budget premiere at the 2005 Melbourne International Comedy Festival where it enjoyed a sold-out run and won an unprecedented three festival awards. In 2006, Neil Armfield directed an extended Company B production of Keating!, now with two acts and six new songs written by Bennetto. The Company B production toured Australia, receiving favourable reviews and winning Helpmann Awards for Best Musical and Best Regional Touring Production.
In 2008 a live recording of the show was broadcast nationally on ABC2. Paul Keating was a Labor Prime Minister of Australia from 1991 to 1996, ascending to the office after two leadership challenges against his predecessor, Bob Hawke; as Prime Minister, he was interested in a "big picture" approach to government, engaging with issues such as a closer relationship with Asia, Aboriginal reconciliation and the formation of an Australian republic. His government was defeated in the 1996 federal election by the Liberal-National coalition under John Howard. Writer Casey Bennetto was inspired to write a musical about Keating following his disappointment at the result of the 2004 federal election, which saw the Howard government returned for a fourth term. "It was time to have a laugh at it," he said. He says Keating's story appealed to him because of its classic dramatic structure, that of a man who struggles, "makes it to the top" and must compete against "three bad guys"—successive Opposition leaders John Hewson, Alexander Downer and John Howard.
Bennetto believed Keating's colourful personality made him an "ideal" character for musical theatre, citing the former Prime Minister's reputation for being sharp-tongued, wearing Zegna suits and collecting antique clocks. Bennetto wrote the show in eight weeks, drawing on Keating biography Recollections of a Bleeding Heart by Don Watson, he describes it as a "ridiculously pro-Paul Keating" piece which aims to be funny and entertaining. Performed by musical group the Drowsy Drivers, Keating! Premiered at the 2005 Melbourne International Comedy Festival as a low-budget, single-act show in a 100-seat venue at the Melbourne Trades Hall. Mike McLeish played the lead role, with Bennetto as "the three Hs – Hawke and Howard", Enio Pozzebon as Gareth Evans and Cam Rogers as Alexander Downer. Despite the musical's success in Melbourne, Bennetto did not have any plans for Keating! after the end of the comedy festival. However, producer Catherine Woodfield insisted. Between 2005 and 2006 they took it on tour across Australia, including a week of shows in the Sydney Opera House, a return season at Melbourne's Trades Hall, a two-week season at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, a week of shows at the Brisbane Powerhouse and two nights in Darwin.
In 2006, renowned director Neil Armfield offered to direct a production of Keating! at Sydney's Belvoir St Theatre with Company B. For the Company B production Bennetto reworked the musical into a two-act piece, writing six new songs for the show. Of the original cast, only McLeish and Bennetto were retained. Terry Serio joined the cast as Howard. Bennetto says that both he and McLeish were worried that Armfield would turn "relatively staged hewn" musical into "the Amadeus version" without the original show's sense of fun, but instead felt it became a "more accomplished, buffed-up version of the original show"; the Company B version of Keating! Enjoyed sold-out seasons in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Wollongong and elsewhere before coming to a close on 31 August 2008. On 20 August 2008, ABC2 broadcast a live performance of the show from Sydney's Seymour Centre; the recording was released on DVD by Madman Entertainment in November 2008. The premiere of the Drowsy Drivers' production at the 2005 Melbourne International Comedy Festival was met with enthusiastic reviews.
Comedian Chris Addison praised the musical as "the best show I've seen at this festival in five years" and The Age's Daniel Ziffer described it as "clever and superbly funny". Within the first week it had become one of the most popular shows of the festival, having sold out by the fifth show. By the end of its Melbourne run, the show had won three major festival awards—the Barry, The Age Critics' Award and the Golden Gibbo—the first time any production had done so. For the songs of Keating!, Bennetto won both the 2006 Helpmann and Green Room Awards for best original musical score. The Company B version received strong reviews, with a writer in Brisbane's Courier-Mail describing it as "brilliantly satirical" and a reviewer in Melbourne's Age awarding it the top rating of five stars; however Paul Sheehan, writing for the Sydney Morning Herald, criticised the musical's pro-Keating bias, calling the script "pr

The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger savings and loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The five senators—Alan Cranston, Dennis DeConcini, John Glenn, John McCain, Donald W. Riegle, Jr. —were accused of improperly intervening in 1987 on behalf of Charles H. Keating, Jr. Chairman of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, the target of a regulatory investigation by the Federal Home Loan Bank Board; the FHLBB subsequently backed off taking action against Lincoln. Lincoln Savings and Loan collapsed at a cost of $3.4 billion to the federal government. Some 23,000 Lincoln bondholders were defrauded and many investors lost their life savings; the substantial political contributions Keating had made to each of the senators, totaling $1.3 million, attracted considerable public and media attention. After a lengthy investigation, the Senate Ethics Committee determined in 1991 that Cranston, DeConcini, Riegle had and improperly interfered with the FHLBB's investigation of Lincoln Savings, with Cranston receiving a formal reprimand.
Senators Glenn and McCain were cleared of having acted improperly but were criticized for having exercised "poor judgment". All five senators served out their terms. Only Glenn and McCain ran for re-election, they both retained their seats. McCain would go on to run for President of the United States twice, was the Republican Party nominee in 2008. McCain was the last senator remaining in his office before his death in August 2018; the U. S. Savings and Loan crisis of the 1980s and early 1990s was the failure of 747 savings and loan associations in the United States; the ultimate cost of the crisis is estimated to have totaled around $160.1 billion, about $124.6 billion of, directly paid for by the U. S. federal government. The accompanying slowdown in the finance industry and the real estate market may have been a contributing cause of the 1990-1991 economic recession. Between 1986 and 1991, the number of new homes constructed per year dropped from 1.8 million to 1 million, at the time the lowest rate since World War II.
The Keating Five scandal was prompted by the activities of one particular savings and loan: Lincoln Savings and Loan Association of Irvine, California. Lincoln's chairman was Charles Keating, who served five years in prison for his corrupt mismanagement of Lincoln. In the four years after Keating's American Continental Corporation had purchased Lincoln in 1984, Lincoln's assets had increased from $1.1 billion to $5.5 billion. Such savings and loan associations had been deregulated in the early 1980s, allowing them to make risky investments with their depositors' money. Keating and other savings and loan operators took advantage of this deregulation. Savings and loans established connections to many members of Congress, by supplying them with needed funds for campaigns through legal donations. Lincoln's particular investments took the form of buying land, taking equity positions in real estate development projects, buying high-yield junk bonds; the core allegation of the Keating Five affair is that Keating had made contributions of about $1.3 million to various U.
S. Senators, he called on those Senators to help him resist U. S. federal regulators. The regulators did back off, to disastrous consequences. Beginning in 1985, Edwin J. Gray, chair of the Federal Home Loan Bank Board, feared that the savings industry's risky investment practices were exposing the government's insurance funds to huge losses. Gray instituted a rule whereby savings associations could hold no more than ten percent of their assets in "direct investments", were thus prohibited from taking ownership positions in certain financial entities and instruments. Lincoln had become burdened with bad debt resulting from its past aggressiveness, by early 1986, its investment practices were being investigated and audited by the FHLBB: in particular, whether it had violated these direct investment rules. By the end of 1986, the FHLBB had found that Lincoln had $135 million in unreported losses and had surpassed the regulated direct investments limit by $600 million. Keating had earlier taken several measures to oppose Gray and the FHLBB, including recruiting a study from then-private economist Alan Greenspan saying that direct investments were not harmful, getting President Ronald Reagan to make a recess appointment of a Keating ally, Atlanta real estate developer Lee H. Henkel Jr. to an open seat on the FHLBB.
By March 1987, Henkel had resigned, upon news of his having large loans due to Lincoln. Meanwhile, the Senate had changed control from Republican to Democratic during the 1986 Congressional elections, placing several Democratic senators in key positions, starting in January 1987, Keating's staff was putting pressure on Cranston to remove Gray from any FHLBB discussion regarding Lincoln; the following month, Keating began large-scale contributions into Cranston's project to increase California voter registration. In February 1987, Keating met with Riegle and began contributing to Riegle's 1988 re-election campaign, it appeared. The investigation was, taking a long time. Keating was asking that Lincoln be given a lenient judgment by the FHLBB, so that it could limit its high risk investments and get into the safe home mortgage business, thus allowing the business to survive.
