Two-time Tony winners Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow will return to Broadway this spring in Lucas Hnath's new drama Hillary & Clinton, directed by Joe Mantello. Previews will begin March 16, with opening night set for April 18. The theater is still to be announced.

The play is described as follows: "Behind closed doors in the state of New Hampshire during the early days of 2008, a former first lady named Hillary (Metcalf) is in a desperate bid to save her troubled campaign for President of the United States. Her husband, Bill (Lithgow), sees things one way; her campaign manager, Mark, sees things another. If any of this sounds familiar, don't be fooled; in a universe of infinite possibilities, anything that can happen, will."

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