Zak Orth and Peter Francis James will complete the Broadway cast of Lucas Hnath's Hillary and Clinton, starring 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. With Lithgow as her husband, Bill, the production will feature Orth as Hillary's campaign manager, Mark Penn, and James as Hillary's opponent, Barack.

Directed by Joe Mantello, Hillary and Clinton will play the Golden Theatre beginning March 16, ahead of an official opening night on April 18. The creative team includes Chloe Lamford (set design), Ann Roth (costume design), and Hugh Vanstone (lighting design).
