In Hillary and Clinton, which began previews March 16, the politics of marriage, gender roles, and the limitations of experience are examined. Billed as a “profound and timely look at an American dynasty in crisis,” the play offers a behind-the-scenes look at a former First Lady named Hillary's 2008 presidential campaign.
