Recently, Clinton: The Musical made its New York City debut on Broadway. The musical which had originally appeared on stage in Edinburgh, Scotland, has hit The Great White Way. The pastime of poking fun at Bill and Hillary Clinton is now set to a musical score. Reviews are pouring in and some are less than flattering, calling the production juvenile. Perhaps so, but everything about the Clinton/Lewinsky debacle seemed juvenile. Of course, Hillary Clinton’s more than likely foray into the 2016 presidential race brings all of this back to life.
I was pondering the names that must have been bandied around before coming up with “Clinton: The Musical”. Johnny Russo and I reveal a lost list of potential names for the show…all satirical, naturally.
Plus, Bill de Blasio seems to be having a yard sale outside his Brooklyn home, and Chelsea Manning’s gender reassignment.
