The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to Clinton at NYMF!
Every year in every theater festival, one show snags the press spotlight.
As soon as I heard that a musical called Clinton was coming over from the UK to make its American debut in this year’s NYMF, I would have bet the GDP of the United States that it would be the show to appear in all the headlines.
And if only someone would have taken that bet, because in the past week, Clinton was featured in the Daily News, The Post, Politico and CNN just to name a few.
And performances don’t even start until July 18th!
As I wrote about in this year’s 5 Shows that Stand Out at This Year’s NYMF blog, there’s something about a Clinton musical that just feels right. Bill is a larger than life character, which is what you need for the hero of a show. And frankly, Hillary, Chelsea, and even Monica have got a lot to sing about too, don’t you think? Couple that with the timing of Hillary making her presidential run (I’d go double or nothing with that GDP bet that she’ll announce soon enough).
The press obviously agrees, and I hear tickets are going faster than when the Republicans tried to impeach Mr. C after the Lewinsky scandal (and I’m hearing extension rumors already).
And we’ve got two tickets to give away so you can say you saw it when!
Not every political figure could be the subject of a musical. Pick another politician that you think could have a musical based on his/her life and comment it below – and you could win. Extra credit if you title the show! And it can be anyone from anywhere in the world at any time in history. For example . . . A musical based on the life and times of Napoleon called, Exile This!
Ready? Set! Good luck!
