Behind closed doors in the state of New Hampshire during the early days of 2008, a former First Lady named Hillary is in a desperate bid to save her troubled campaign for President of the United States against Barack. Her husband, Bill, 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. In Hillary and Clinton, Hnath examines the politics of marriage, gender roles, and the limitations of experience and inevitability in this profoundly timely look at an American dynasty in crisis.
Directed by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello, Hillary and Clinton stars two-time Tony Award winner Laurie Metcalf, two-time Tony winner John Lithgow, Zak Orth, and Peter Francis James. Performances begin on March 16 at the John Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street), ahead of an official opening night on April 18.
