Broadway news: “Roseanne” star Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow will play Hillary and Bill Clinton in a new play by Lucas Hnath, who wrote the hit “A Doll’s House, Part 2.” The play opens April 19, 2019. Joe Mantello is directing.
Here’s the description:
“Behind closed doors in the state of New Hampshire during the early days of 2008, a former First Lady named Hillary (Metcalf) is in a desperate bid to save her troubled campaign for President of the United States. Her husband, Bill (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 that can happen, will. “
