VIDEO: John Lithgow Says HILLARY AND CLINTON is a Very Personal Play
During the interview, Lithgow tells Meyers that he was relieved that Hillary and Bill Clinton turned down the opportunity to see the play without an audience before the show premiered. He understood their choice to turn the offer down, too, saying, "It's a very personal play. It's a play about marriage. It's not really about them. It takes them as a kind of metaphor for Lucas Hnath's own rumination on marriage, on political marriage, on women right now."
Watch the interview below!
Behind closed doors in the state of New Hampshire during the early days of 2008, a former First Lady named Hillary (Metcalf) is in a desperate bid to save her troubled campaign for President of the United States. Her husband, Bill (Lithgow), sees things one way; her campaign manager, Mark, sees things another. If any of this sounds familiar, don't be fooled; in a universe of infinite possibilities, anything that can happen, will.
The show will play a limited engagement through July 21, 2019.
