With red, white and blue-clad drummers and much fanfare, Michael Moore’s Broadway debut, The Terms of My Surrender, opened at the Belasco Theatre Thursday, August 10.
Special guests for opening night festivities included Harry Belafonte, Dan Rather, Christie Brinkley, Gloria Steinem, Phil Donahue, Marlo Thomas, Rosie O’Donnell, Garry Trudeau, Christine Lahti and Harvey Fierstein.
The play, a subversive examination of contemporary American politics, is directed by Michael Mayer and includes a revolving shift of celebrity guests. Opening night’s special participant was Gloria Steinem.
After the play a march from the Belasco to Bryant Park preceded the opening night party at the Bryant Park Grill. Theater Pizzazz’s JK Clarke was on hand to capture the festivities.
