Wish you could have a permanent reminder of 1992, when scrunchies are in, mullets are out, Baywatch is a hit and Time Magazine’s Man of the Year is Bill Clinton? Well, now you can! Clinton the Musical will release a cast recording on Ghostlight Records later this year. Starring Kerry Butler, Tom Galantich and Duke Lafoon, the production is playing at New World Stages.
Clinton The Musical, which features a book by Michael and Paul Hodge and a score by Paul, explores the two very different sides of the 42nd President of the United States: “WJ,” the wholesome, intelligent one, and “Billy,” the randy, charming one. With Hillary (Rodham) Clinton at their side, the two handle issues from The White House to Whitewater, the sax to the sex, social security to social climbers, and in the process make history. Maybe. Dan Knechtges directs.
Additional cast members include Judy Gold, John Treacy Egan, Veronica J. Kuehn, Kevin Zak, Kara Guy, Dale Hensley, Rob Richardson and Gretchen Wylder.
