Laurie Metcalf And John Lithgow Will Play Hillary And Bill Clinton In A New Broadway Play


Veteran actors Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow will star as Hillary and Bill Clinton in a new play set to premiere on Broadway next year, producers announced.

Hillary and Clinton is penned by Tony nominee Lucas Hnath, who also wrote A Doll’s House, Part 2, for which Metcalf herself won a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play in 2017.

The play, which will be directed by Joe Mantello, is set in New Hampshire during the 2008 Democratic primaries as the former first lady struggled against then-senator Barack Obama. Clinton ultimately won the state's primary after Obama had won the earlier Iowa caucus. Click here to READ MORE.
