A Play About Hillary And Bill Clinton Is Coming To Broadway This Spring With A Stellar Cast

By Evan Brechtel

The words of Broadway's hottest emerging playwright, Lucas Hnath, will be back on Broadway next Spring in a play that's sure to turn the Great White Way to solid blue.

The play, Hillary and Clinton, features a bewildered Hillary Clinton during the 2008 campaign as she struggles to stay afloat in Iowa against a fictionalized Barack Obama (referred to in the play as "that other guy"). It echoes some of the themes that recently brought Hnath widespread critical acclaim in A Doll's House, part II: marriage, misogyny, women's determination pitted against unfair societal structures, and more. Not to mention, the recently-announced cast is already generating buzz.

Fresh off of an Oscar nomination and multiple Tony wins, national treasure Laurie Metcalf will take on the role of Hillary Clinton. Metcalf won a Tony last year for her portrayal of Nora in A Doll's House, part II. John Lithgow, whose performance as Winston Churchill on The Crown has wowed audiences, will play her husband Bill.
