Clinton The Musical Celebrates Hillary's 2016 Bid With Special Discount
The next Clinton administration is already serving us well.
In honor of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential bid, which she made official in her Sunday-evening announcement, Clinton The Musical, now running at New World Stages, is offering $20.16 tickets, available only this week through April 19. Though the satirical musical captures what is likely one of Clinton's least favorite memories from her first round at the White House, she can look ahead to her own potential administration, where things are sure to be far less scandalous.
Written by Paul Hodge and Michael Hodge, and directed and choreographed by Tony Award nominee Dan Knechtges, Clinton The Musical follows Hillary and Bill Clinton through the infamous Monica Lewinsky debacle. The cast features Tony nominee Kerry Butler as Hillary Rodham Clinton, Tom Galantich as WJ Clinton, Duke Lafoon as Billy Clinton, Emmy Award winner Judy Gold as Eleanor Roosevelt, John Treacy Egan as Newt Gingrich, Veronica J. Kuehn as Monica Lewinsky, and Kevin Zak as Kenneth Starr.
"What better way to celebrate Hillary's announcement as the first potential female president," said producer Kari Lynn Hearn, "than by coming to see our politically irreverent, over-the-top cast of characters who will remind you of a time in history when politics and the press made for a theatrical event all on their own!"
