The liberals continue to push crooked Hillary’s sob story…
A Broadway portrayal of former President Bill Clinton and former First Lady Hillary Clinton will end its run early due to underwhelming ticket sales.
The production of “Hillary and Clinton” was scheduled to close July 21, but producer Scott Rudin announced Monday that its final performance will be held Sunday. June 23. The play cost $4.2 million to produce and accumulated only $4.7 million at the box office.
The play takes place in March 2008 and provides a fictional look behind the scenes at the first presidential campaign of the former Secretary of State as Senator Barack Obama started to gain momentum. The play stars Tony winners Laurie Metcalf as the Democratic candidate and John Lithgow as former President Bill Clinton.
Metcalf was nominated for her lead performance at this year’s Tony Awards, but lost to Elaine May in “The Waverly Gallery.”
The play debuted with a completely different cast in Chicago in 2016. It premiered at the John Golden Theater on Broadway in April 2019. Playwright Lucas Hnath defined his production as “a play about the Clintons that’s not a play about the Clintons.”
The cast also featured Zak Orth as former Clinton pollster Mark Penn and Peter Francis James as Barack Obama — referred to in the play as “The Other Guy.”
The early curtain call comes after Hillary and Bill’s national tour also struggled to find an audience this year, with some tickets for the 13-city event selling at more than 50 percent off.
