Lucas Hnath's Hillary and Clinton will end its Broadway run on Sunday, June 23, after 37 previews and 77 regular performances. Directed by Joe Mantello, Hillary and Clinton began performances at the John Golden Theatre on March 16 ahead of its opening on April 18.

With a cast led by Tony and Emmy Award winners Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow, the play is set in the early days of 2008, where a former first lady named Hillary (Metcalf) is in a desperate bid to save her troubled campaign for President of the United States. Lithgow plays Bill, her husband, with Zak Orth as Hillary's campaign manager, Mark Penn, and Peter Francis James as Hillary's opponent, Barack.

The Hillary and Clinton creative team includes Chloe Lamford (set design), Ann Roth (costume design), and Hugh Vanstone (lighting design).
