Yes, I would like to see this. Sounds interesting. Not sure this is one the Clintons will be hitting, but you never know!

 


Set during the 2008 Democratic primaries, the play about the complex workings of a marriage reunites Metcalf with producer Scott Rudin and playwright Lucas Hnath, whose ‘A Doll’s House, Part 2’ won the actress her first Tony.

Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow, both two-time Tony Award winners, will team up on Broadway to play the power couple who have been a prominent part of the American political landscape for the past quarter-century in Hillary and Clinton.

The play by Lucas Hnath is a four-hander set in New Hampshire during the 2008 Democratic primaries, as Hillary Rodham Clinton, her chief strategist Mark J. Penn and her husband Bill Clinton butt heads over whether bringing in the former president will be a liability or an asset in HRC’s troubled campaign to secure the nomination for a White House run. Her opponent, Barack Obama, is the play’s unnamed fourth character, referred to only as “The Other Guy.”

Rising-star playwright Hnath made his Broadway debut in 2017 with A Doll’s House, Part 2, which has gone on to become the most-produced play of the current theater season in America. The witty response to Ibsen won Metcalf the first of two consecutive Tonys, for lead actress in a play. She followed with a featured actress win this year for Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women. Both those plays were presented on Broadway by Scott Rudin, who also is producing Hillary and Clinton.

Joe Mantello — another two-time Tony winner, who directed Three Tall Women and this summer’s hit revival of The Boys in the Band, on which Rudin also was a producer — will stage Hillary and Clinton.

George BackProducer, Yahoo Entertainment

Murphy Brown stars Candice Bergen and Faith Ford sat down with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happen Live, where they discussed the recent season premiere and Hillary Clinton’s surprise cameo.

While Clinton got a lot of laughs on camera, both actresses said that things were different off camera. “When she first came on the set, I, of course, started tearing up, and I saw another couple of women on the set tearing up,” said Bergen. “It was very emotional.”

How did I miss this? Damn! Oh, I know. I had my nose buried in Woodward’s Fear! Serves me right for not lightening up after this grueling day.

Hillary Clinton Guest Stars in ‘Murphy Brown’ Premiere as Secretarial Candidate

Hillary Clinton was the first big name cameo of “Murphy Brown’s” revival season.

Clinton appeared in the Sept. 27 premiere of the Candice Bergen-led sitcom — but not as herself. Instead, she was “Hilary,” a woman who said she is often mistaken for the former presidential candidate but actually spells her name with only one “L.” She arrived at Murphy’s new cable news show, “Murphy in the Morning,” to interview for the “secretarial position.”

“Your reputation proceeds you, but I want you to know I’m not afraid of hard work, I’m qualified, and I’m ready on day one,” Clinton said to Murphy at the start of her interview.

Murphy went on to ask if she had any secretarial experience (“For four years I was the secretary … of a very large organization,” she replied) and if she had experience with technology and teamwork.

“I do have some experience with emails,” she said. And on the topic of how many people it takes to run a production, she relied on another one of her campaign mottos: “Everyone works together, it takes a village.”
