BWW TV: Welcome to the White House! Watch Sneak Peek of CLINTON THE MUSICAL
Clinton The Musical has found its Bills. Yes, Bills plural - it takes two actors to play the larger than life 42nd President of The United States. Playing President "WJ" Clinton is Tom Galantich (Tail! Spin!, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) and Duke Lafoon (MONICA! The Musical, A Wonderful Life) will take on the role of "Billy" Clinton. Additional casting includes John Treacy Egan (Nice Work if you Can Get It, Sister Act) as Newt Gingrich, Veronica Kuehn (Mamma Mia!, Avenue Q) as Monica Lewinsky, Kevin Zak (Silence! The Musical, My Life is a Musical) as Kenneth Starr with Kara Guy (National Tour: Footloose), Dale Hensley (La Cage aux Folles, The Drowsy Chaperone), Rob Richardson (Jekyll & Hyde, A Tale of Two Cities), and Gretchen Wylder (Bedbugs!!!, Til Divorce Do Us Part). They will join the previously announced Tony nominee Kerry Butler as Hillary Clinton and Emmy Award winner Judy Gold as Eleanor Roosevelt.
The cast just met the press and you can check out a sneak peek of the new musical below!
If President William Jefferson Clinton behaved like two different people-one moment noble, the next naughty-that's because he was! Clinton The Musical explores the two very different sides of the 42nd President of the United States: "WJ," the wholesome, intelligent one, and "Billy," the randy, charming one. With Hillary (Rodham) Clinton at their side, the two will handle issues from The White House to Whitewater, the sax to the sex, social security to social climbers, and in the process make history. Maybe. You cannot miss this "Hillary-ous" new musical and outrageous double Bill!
