Michael Moore is heading to Broadway to skewer Donald Trump with “The Terms of My Surrender,” his theatrical debut, producers IMG Original Content and Carole Shorenstein Hays announced Monday.
Michael Mayer (“Spring Awakening”) will direct the limited 12-week engagement with previews beginning at Broadway’s Belasco Theatre on July 28, 2017, with an official opening night set for August 10, 2017.
Moore’s one-man show will be performed each night just blocks away from Trump Tower and will “feature the wry, satirical humor of one of America’s iconic political observers and all-around-s—-disturbers, a fearless Midwesterner not interested in taking any prisoners,” according to the press release.
“I think what the world needs right now is Michael Moore standing on a Broadway stage sharing his hilarious stories and incendiary political perspective, creating the kind of dialogue that can only happen in the theater,” Mayer said in a statement.
Moore’s credits include directing “Fahrenheit 9/11,” the highest-grossing documentary of all time, as well as “Bowling for Columbine,” which earned an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Other films include “Sicko,” “Roger & Me” and “Where to Invade Next.”
He also created the television series “TV Nation” and “The Awful Truth,” and has written eight books which have all made the best-seller list.
Last October, Moore dropped a film about Trump titled “Michael Moore in TrumpLand” which screened for the first time in New York City’s IFC Center that month.
101 Productions will serve as executive producer on “The Terms of My Surrender.” Tickets are $29 to $149 and are available starting today at telecharge.com.
