Michael Moore, the Academy Award-winning filmmaker behind 'Bowling for Columbine' and 'Fahrenheit 9/11,' brings his powers of provocation to the stage in this world premiere one-man play. More…
'The Terms of My Surrender' is a hilarious satirical tour through the depraved new world we find ourselves in since appointing a madman as the leader of the free world. The show features insights drawn from Moore's long history as an activist and high-profile pot stirrer, ongoing translations of each day's fresh insanity, and any number of nightly surprises. Directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer ('Spring Awakening,' 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch').
