Broadway show based on Clintons promises to be better than the real thing

Hillary and Bill Clinton have hit the road on a national speaking tour, but fans — and detractors — may find more revelations in the Broadway show about the political players.

The Post described the real-life Clintons’ speaking appearance at the Beacon Theatre last week as a “snoozefest” that only livened up when an audience member yelled, “Bill, this is boring!”

There are sure to be more fireworks onstage at the Golden Theatre when Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow portray the pair in “Hillary and Clinton,” which opens Thursday.

The warts-and-all play by Lucas Hnath is set in a hotel room during the 2008 New Hampshire primary, where the Clintons privately face off.

A Chicago run of the show in 2016 was called a “whip-smart, highly entertaining piece of writing.”
