Clinton the Musical has found its first lady.
Tony nominee Kerry Butler will star as Hillary Rodham Clinton in the upcoming off-Broadway staging of Paul Hodge and Michael Hodge's musical comedy. Directed by Tony nominee Dan Knechtges, the political satire will begin previews March 26 and open April 9 at New World Stages.
"If President William Jefferson Clinton behaved like two different people — one moment noble, the next naughty — that’s because he was," read press notes about the production. "Clinton the Musical explores the two very different sides of the 42nd President of the United States: 'WJ,' the wholesome, intelligent one, and 'Billy,' the randy, charming one. With Hillary Clinton at their side, the two will handle issues from The White House to Whitewater, the sax to the sex, social security to social climbers, and in the process make history. Maybe."
Clinton the Musical premiered last year and played to sold-out houses at the New York Musical Theatre Festival.
Butler's Broadway credits include Xanadu, Little Shop of Horrors, and Hairspray.
