• Are You Ready for “Clinton: The Musical”?

    We're not so sure the cast is

    I have to admit, when news broke of a Bill Clinton musical opening in New York, I was kind of excited. Once I learned that Clinton: The Musical would be presented as “A Tale of Two Clintons,” with two separate actors portraying two very different sides of the 42nd prezzo’s personality, I thought for sure that this had hilarity potential. Not necessarily that it would have a conservative bent, but at the very least, I was hoping for a South Park-style everyone-gets-mocked affair.

    And then I saw the cast on MSNBC.

    What’s clear from this interview is that their version of Bill Clinton “satire” simply means a loving tribute to the man. LAME! There’s no way these guys are going to do a real Bubba send-up. Don’t hold your breath for any comedy reenactments of pizza comas, explicit sex, or cigars in forbidden places. All signs point to them playing it safe with this one. They’ll be lucky if this is more entertaining than Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. But I guess since they’re only opening at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, the stakes won’t be that high.

    These guys really shouldn’t have come out and done an interview about the project so soon either, since they were clearly unprepared. The two men playing Clinton couldn’t even come up with a decent line when asked for a sneak peek. File this one under Another Good Idea Wasted By Liberals.
