“Ribald & entertaining”National Review Online
It's 1992. Scrunchies are in and mullets are out. Baywatch is a hit and Time Magazine's Man of the Year is Bill Clinton. He's optimistic, charismatic, and he's bringing saxy back!
Clinton the Musical is a sensational and satirical look at the 42nd President who upholds the ideals of Lady Liberty while simultaneously charming the pantsuit off her. With Hillary by his side, he's bringing new life to the party- So cast your vote for The President of All Political Satires: Clinton the Musical!
