Michael Moore makes his Broadway debut
The left-wing polemicist, film maker, writer and agent provocateur is headed to Broadway for his first-ever stage show that he has written and will be starring in. It will be helmed by Spring Awakening's Tony-winning director Michael Mayer. Billed as "taking aim at Trump" by the New York Times, the show will be part stand-up, part play, part angry rant, and is set to raise the hackles of plenty a No. 45 supporter. A limited engagement of just 12 weeks starting in July, Moore will perform his one-man show eight times a week, in what will be a headline-stealing engagement, and one that is guaranteed to spark more than a few angry early morning Tweets from the White House...
What to expect
Promised as a subversive new solo play and incisive commentary of America's political climate, Moore's pre-scripted (as well as commenting on news) material will show off his skills as the most popular political documentary filmmaker and author in recent times. Having directed and produced 2004's Fahrenheit 9/11, he offered a daminingly critical look at the presidency of George W. Bush and his War on Terror; it currently holds the record as the highest-grossing documentary at the American box office of all time, and is a winner of the esteemed Palme d'Or Award. His anti-gun documentary Bowling for Columbine (2002), examined the root causes of the Columbine High School massacre and won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature that year.
