A new musical called Clinton: The Musical is set to debut at the New York Musical Theater Festival this summer from July 18-25. It will be showcased at Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theater at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
The show’s description states:
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.”
Australian brothers Michael and Paul Hodge created the show, which was nominated as best new musical at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The book was authored by both brothers, while Paul Hodge alone provided the music and lyrics.
The show features actors playing Newt Gingrich and Monica Lewinsky.
Tickets are $25.
