The Broadway production of Hillary and Clinton, which celebrates its official opening April 18 at the Golden Theatre, will offer a midnight benefit show, with proceeds going to the Actors Fund. The late-night performance will take place May 16 (going into May 17).
Tony winners Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow star in the Lucas Hnath play, in which the politics of marriage, gender roles, and the limitations of experience are examined. Billed as a “profound and timely look at an American dynasty in crisis,” the play offers a behind-the-scenes look at a former First Lady named Hillary's 2008 presidential campaign.
Rounding out the Broadway cast are Zak Orth as campaign manager Mark and Peter Francis James as Barack.
A Scott Rudin production, Hillary and Clinton features scenic design by Chloe Lamford, costume design by Rita Ryack, lighting design by Hugh Vanstone, and sound design by Leon Rothenberg. Casting is by Caparelliotis Casting.
The Actors Fund provides professionals in the performing arts community with various programs and resources, including health care, affordable housing, senior care, and career development. For tickets to the added performance, visit ActorsFund.org.
