'Clinton: The Musical' Coming To New York City
Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton will be the focus of Clinton: The Musical, a stage show that will soon be premiering in Manhattan.
Clinton: The Musical To Hit NYC
Clinton: The Musical will premiere at the New York Musical Theatre Festival next month at the Pershing Square Signature Center, reported Entertainment Weekly. It started out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe – and due to a positive reception – later moved on to King’s Head, London.
“It’s hard enough being president by yourself. Bill Clinton’s problem is that there are two of him,” reads the show’s description. “Literally. Clinton follows two Bill Clintons and Hillary on their quest to save their presidency, change America and prove that ‘politics is show business for ugly people.’”
In addition to Hillary and the two Bills, the Clinton musical also features appearances by Newt Gingrich, Monica Lewinsky and Kenneth Star. Alet Taylor will play the former First Lady and Secretary of State. Karl Kenzler plays W.J. Clinton, while Duke Lafoon plays “Billy” Clinton.
Australian brothers Michael and Paul Hodge created Clinton: The Musical, which was nominated for best new musical at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Tickets for Clinton: The Musical’s U.S. debut are $25.
