The show will be directed by Adam McKay, Ferrell's longtime collaborator, and director of the comedy classics Anchorman, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, and this summer's box office hit Step Brothers.

Performances will begin on Tuesday, January 20, 2009, the same day as the United States Presidential Inauguration, in preparation for the February 5th opening. The limited engagement will run through March 15, 2009 at the Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street)

"You're Welcome America. A Final Night with George W Bush" is being produced by Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel and Steve Traxler the producing team behind the current August: Osage County and Speed-The-Plow, as well as Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions with Executive Producer Jessica Elbaum.

Will Ferrell has come a long way since his days on Saturday Night Live, crossing over from television icon to motion picture star. Most recently, Ferrell reunited with John C. Reilly in the comedy Step Brothers. Ferrell also reunited with longtime collaborator, writer/director Adam McKay, to co-write the screenplay. Released this July, Step Brothers went to earn over $100 million domestically.

In 2007, Ferrell and McKay founded the video website Funnyordie.com. The comedy video website contains exclusive material from a number of famous contributors such as Judd Apatow and Jack Black, and has its own "Funny or Die Team" ("FOD Team") which creates original material for the site. The site's first video, "The Landlord," has received over 55 million views and features Ferrell confronted by a swearing, beer-drinking two-year-old landlord. In June 2008, the site announced a partnership with HBO to develop television projects.
