Michael Moore's One-Man Broadway Performance Aims To Potentially Overthrow Trump Administration

Michael Moore, unabashedly liberal filmmaker and activist, was one of the few to see the writing on the wall last year. As the 2016 election approached, he warned people that Donald Trump was going to win. He figured out that Trump was on the right track with the right pockets of the country that would secure him the electoral college vote. Now, he's working tirelessly to figure out how to bring about Trump's downfall.

Moore is going to Broadway with a new stage production. His Broadway debut is a play entitled “The Terms of My Surrender,” and it's heavily critical of the president.

“Can a Broadway show take down a sitting President?” says a show poster. Moore is hoping.

“It’s a humorous play about a country that’s just elected a madman,” Moore, explains to The New York Times. “I mean, there’s really no other way to put it.”

"In a time like no other in American history, and with a sense of urgency like never-before, Michael Moore comes to Broadway for the first time in an exhilarating, subversive one-man show guaranteed to take audiences on a ride through the United States of Insanity, explaining once and for all how the f*** we got here, and where best to dine before crossing with the Von Trapp family over the Canadian border," reads the description of the one-man show.

Tony Award-winner Michael Mayer is directing the show. He thinks theater is the perfect medium to help use the show to create political dialogue. “I think what the world needs right now is Michael Moore standing on a Broadway stage, sharing his hilarious stories and incendiary political perspective,” he says.

Moore has already tried taking a shot at the president with his film, "Trumpland." People say it reads more like a love letter to Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton than a pot shot at Trump, so this is Moore going back to the drawing board.

The unique performance isn't quite a stand-up comedy routine, nor is it quite a play. It's a flexibly scripted performance with the potential for guest stars. It'll run for just 12 weeks at the Belasco Theatre.
