Clinton- The Musical

Anyone planning to see this or heard anything about it?


Hillary Clinton might be headed to the White House in 2016 but first she'll be hitting New York City thanks to a new musical about her and her husband, former president Bill Clinton.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the musical, titled Clinton, will make its first run in America this summer after debuting in Scotland in 2012. The show was nominated for best new musical at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe before it transferred to London's King's Head Theatre in 2013.

The musical examines the power-couple's "quest to save their presidency, change America and prove that 'politics is show business for ugly people.'
"

1. I could see sort of a 'Thoroughly Modern Millie' production

ENSEMBLE MEN:
There are those, I suppose
Think we're mad, heaven knows
The world has gone to rack and to ruin

WOMAN #1:
What we think is chic

WOMAN #2:
Unique

WOMEN #3 & #4:
And quite adorable

ENSEMBLE WOMEN:
They think is odd and "Sodom and Gomorrah"-ble!

MILLIE:
But the fact is,
Everything today is thoroughly modern

ENSEMBLE:
Check your personality

MILLIE:
Everything today makes yesterday slow

ENSEMBLE:
Better face reality


Thoroughly Modern Millie lyrics

2. Can they afford all the Hillary costumes?

 

There would have to be a Goldwater Girl costume, a WalMart anti-labor attorney costume, a Wall St puppet DLC costume, a sniper-fire dodging war-mongering Rambo costume, a poverty-stricken Hillary costume, etc. Hope the production is well-funded... maybe the Koch bros will chip in.
