Michael Moore on Broadway: The Terms of My Surrender–How Moore Plans to Destabilize Trump

Michael Moore is bringing his solo show, Michael Moore on Broadway: The Terms of My Surrender, to the Broadway Belasco Theater

Michael Mayer, the director of Tony-winning productions of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Spring Awakening, will direct the show, which begins previews in July.

Moore described Terms of My Surrender as a new piece, separate from the live show that was the subject of his film “Michael Moore in Trumpland.” He’ll respond to the news of the day during the show, and sometime incorporate guest appearances.

The goal is to destabilize Trump and his administration through satire. “We need an army of satirists,” he said. “His Achilles heel is his very, very thin skin.”

The production would reserve the presidential box at the Belasco for Trump at every performance. “It will sit empty until he sits there. I hope he comes to see it, or his family. Or Mike Pence. We won’t boo him!” he joked, referring to an incident last fall when Pence attend “Hamilton.”

“It’s a 12 week limited run. I would like Trump to have the same thing,” Moore continued. “I really am in a take-no-prisoners mode right now.”

Contemporary politics is extremely rare for large-scale stage shows to tackle sitting presidents.

In recent years, there was Will Ferrell’s George W. Bush comedy You’re Welcome America. A Final Night With George W Bush,” which began previews the day his successor, Barack Obama, was inaugurated in early 2009.

The Terms of My Surrender starts performances July 28 prior to an Augist 10 opening.
