About the show

A satirical musical set in the '90s about the presidency of William Clinton and the various scandals and characters surrounding it. More…

It's 1992. Scrunchies are in and mullets are out. 'Baywatch' is a hit and Time Magazine's Man of the Year is Bill Clinton. He's optimistic, charismatic, and he's bringing "saxy" back. 'Clinton the Musical' is a satirical look at the 42nd President who upholds the ideals of Lady Liberty while simultaneously charming the pantsuit off her. With Hillary by his side, he's bringing new life to the party.

Hilarious, Great acting, Relevant, Clever, Ken starr does a kick split!

See it if Too topical to have closed so early! Kevin Zak as Kenneth Starr kills it! Sums up Monica Lewinsky with torch songs. How perfect is that?

Don't see it if if you're Gloria Steinem or Madeline Albright. As much as I loved the Clintons, they are not exempt from a wicked satire. Not after 8 years.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Hilarious

See it if you remember the Clinton administration and just want to see a lighthearted, but hilarious trip through the 90's.

Great writing, Intelligent, Profound, Refreshing, Resonant

"This satirical, musical take on Bill Clinton’s presidency from 1993 to 2001 hits American politics right on its semi-bulbous nose. Backed by a stellar cast of singing reporters, dancing Senate cardboard cutouts and a special appearance by that unforgettable blue dress, 'Clinton the Musical' is ...

The line might sound like a lukewarm zinger but it sets the tone for sharper jabs that will be flung...This production reopens a closet of skeletons the Clintons would like for America to forget:...

"The 95-minute musical doesn’t offer much in the way of a fresh or incisive take on the Clinton White House years. Though it’s bolstered by some first-rate performers, 'Clinton the Musical' feels as if it has arrived from some far-off land where news of the Clintons has only recently been receive...
