Heading to Perth for the first time after a sell-out season off Broadway, this hilarious musical will be just the antidote we need in the lead up to yet another US presidential election drama.

Bill Clinton is one of America’s most influential and divisive presidents. On the one hand: educated, charismatic and extremely popular. On the other: reckless, fun and decidedly unprofessional. Clinton: The Musical explores this duality with two actors playing both sides of Clinton as he navigates his tumultuous career, alongside his ever-faithful wife Hillary. 

"WJ", the wholesome, intelligent one, and "Billy", the randy, charming one attempt to resolve a range of domestic issues including, yes, "that" infamous incident with a particular bright-eyed, bushy-tailed White House intern... 

This engaging and outrageous musical comedy, penned by Australian writing duo and brothers, Paul Hodge and Michael Hodge, will set you up for an unimpeachable night out with zero spin.
