Michael Moore to Open on Broadway in The Terms of My Surrender
Michael Mayer will direct the limited engagement at the Belasco Theatre.
Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore is set to make his Broadway debut with The Terms of My Surrender. Directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), the limited 12-week engagement will begin previews at Broadway's Belasco Theatre on July 28 with an official opening night set for August 10.
The production is described as "an exhilarating, subversive one-man show guaranteed to take audiences on a ride through the United States of Insanity." It poses the question, "Can a Broadway show take down a sitting President?"
The Terms of My Surrender will, like Moore's films, feature the wry, satirical humor of "one of America's iconic political observers and all-around-sh*t-disturbers, a fearless Midwesterner not interested in taking any prisoners."
"I think what the world needs right now is Michael Moore standing on a Broadway stage sharing his hilarious stories and incendiary political perspective, creating the kind of dialogue that can only happen in the theater," said director Michael Mayer in a statement.
