The show explores the cultural events that preceded Donald J. Trump’s 2016 electoral victory, and how the businessman and former reality television star was able to captivate the American people during his campaign.
As Moore explains in the clip above, “He knew how to communicate with the American public. He knew how to tell people what they wanted to hear. ... He was already a TV star.”
Still, Moore’s stage story largely focuses on the power of the American people to have their voices heard—no matter who is in the White House.
Moore won an Oscar for his documentary Bowling for Columbine, about guns in America, and earned a second Oscar nomination for his documentary Sicko, exploring America’s healthcare system. His book Stupid White Men was on the New York Times bestseller list for over a year.
Written by Moore, the production was directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer with scenic design by Tony winner David Rockwell, costume design by Jeff Mahshie, lighting design by Tony winner Kevin Adams, sound design by Tony winner Brian Ronan, projections and video design by Andrew Lazarow, and movement direction by Noah Racey.
