Fans already got You’re Welcome, America: A Final Night with George W. Bush; now the Clintons are getting their moment in the New York stage spotlight.
Clinton: The Musical will make its New York stage premiere as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival. The show description: “It’s hard enough being president by yourself. Bill Clinton’s problem is that there are two of him. 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.’”
The show, which will run July 18-25 at the Pershing Square Signature Center, was presented at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it earned a nomination for best new musical, and subsequently transferred to King’s Head, London. Theatermania reports lots of ’90s-era Clinton figures make an appearance in the two-hour show, including Newt Gingrich, Kenneth Star, and Monica Lewinsky.
Does that mean viewers might get a “Partition” cover?
