Show Description

Two-time Tony Award, and three-time Emmy winner Laurie Metcalf, and two-time Tony Award and six-time Emmy winner John Lithgow return to Broadway to star in Hillary and Clinton, a new play by Tony nominee Lucas Hnath (A Doll’s House, Part 2). Directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello.

Behind closed doors in the state of New Hampshire during the early days of 2008, a former First Lady named Hillary (two-time Tony Award, and three-time Emmy winner Laurie Metcalf)  is in a desperate bid to save her troubled campaign for President of the United States. Her husband, Bill, (six-time Emmy winner John Lithgow ) sees things one way; her campaign manager, Mark, sees things another.

If any of this sounds familiar, don’t be fooled; in a universe of infinite possibilities, anything can happen. Hillary and Clinton examines the politics of marriage, gender roles, and the limitations of experience in this profound and timely look at an American dynasty in crisis.

NYT Critic's pick

It is our very good fortune that Hillary is portrayed by Laurie Metcalf, an actress who does being thwarted better than anyone.

CONTINUE READING THE NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW

As directed by Joe Mantello, the dynamic between the two is engrossing on that bare stage. But what emerges is not so much a dramatic play as a psychological study of two brilliant and flawed people." 

CONTINUE READING THE NY1 REVIEW

If anyone could play Hillary Clinton, it’s Laurie Metcalf – and here she is, in Lucas Hnath’s “Hillary and Clinton, giving a performance that feels painfully honest and true. And if anyone could capture Bill Clinton’s feckless but irresistible charm, that would be John Lithgow – and here he is, too. Who better to work with these actors, sounding the depths of these iconic figures, than director Joe Mantello, who is also on deck.
