Roseanne star Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow of The Crown are poised to star as Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton in a new Broadway play.
Hillary and Clinton, by Lucas Hnath, author of A Doll’s House, Part 2, is slated to open on Broadway in spring 2019. The play is set in New Hampshire during the early days of 2008 as Hillary Clinton tries to save a troubled campaign for president.
Two-time Tony winner Metcalf played a Hillary Clinton supporter in the Roseanne reboot earlier this year and continues her role as Jackie on the spinoff, The Conners. Two-time Tony winner Lithgow has had notable turns on Dexter and 3rd Rock From the Sun.
