The White House had other problems in the 90s, namely Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. They’re all unleashed in this farce of a musical that puts new spins on what really went on as Clinton the Musical, with book, music and lyrics by Paul Hodge, makes it’s off Broadway debut at New World Stages. Featuring Kerry Butler as Hillary, Tom Galantich as WJ Clinton and Duke Lagoon as alter-ego Billy Clinton, sex and sax meet in new and amusing ways.
Also in the mix you’ll find Judy Gold (good thing she’s tall) as both Eleanor Roosevelt and Linda Tripp; John Treacy Egan as Newt Gingrich, Kevin Zak as Kenneth Starr and Veronica Kuehn as Monica Lewinsky. The cast also features Kara Guy and Dale Hensley.
It’s a naughty and nice production as issues from social security to social climbers and The White House to Whitewater are tackled in this “Hillary-ous” new musical and outrageous double Bill!
