Broadway: Michael Moore Will Make His Broadway Debut This Summer in One Man Show


UPDATE The one man show is called “The Terms of My Surrender.” Moore begins performances at the Belasco at the end of July for 12 weeks. Michael Mayer directs, which is confusing. 

Moore poses the question: Can a Broadway show take down a sitting President?” 


We’ll see.



Oscar winner documentary filmmaker and political agitator (in the best way) Michael Moore is making a big announcement this morning. He’s coming to Broadway. Moore has scheduled an 11am press conference at Sardi’s, Broadway’s most famous watering hole. He’s also hired one of the top PR agencies to do it, O&M, the same company that represents “Hello, Dolly!” It’s unlikely Moore will be stepping in for Bette Midler or David Hyde Pierce, however. The odds are he’ll bring his one man show to a small theater for a limited run. Moore owns a small theater in Ohio. Last fall he taped a performance there that became a last minute plea to voters to turn out for Hillary Clinton. So stay tuned…
