Filmmaker Michael Moore brings his political satire to Broadway

(Reuters) Provocative documentary maker Michael Moore is bringing politics to Broadway with a one-man show billed as “guaranteed to take audiences on a ride through the United States of Insanity.”

Producers said yesterday that Moore, the Oscar-winning maker of thought-provoking films on guns, the war in Iraq and the US healthcare system, will make his Broadway debut in July with The Terms of My Surrender.

The 12-week limited run will see the liberal Moore, 63, use his satirical humour to target Washington politics and US President Donald Trump.

“So, the question is posed: ‘Can a Broadway show take down a sitting president?’ Well, it’s time to find out,” said the release announcing the show.

Moore, a vocal critic of Trump, won an Oscar in 2003 for his gun violence documentary Bowling for Columbine, and was nominated for an Oscar in 2008 for Sicko, an indictment of the US healthcare industry.

He is also the author of best-selling books including Stupid White Men and Here Comes Trouble.

In October, three weeks before the 2016 presidential elections, he released the anti-Trump documentary film Michael Moore in Trumpland.

Tickets for The Terms of My Surrender, beginning July 28, went on sale yesterday.
