On August 10, 2017, best-selling author, celebrated filmmaker, and political icon Michael Moore will open on Broadway with his one-man show The Terms of My Surrender. The well-known liberal, made famous for his polarizing documentary films Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11, and Sicko, will take on contemporary politics with his usual penchant and talent for satirical humor. Producers have announced a rush ticket policy for the highly-anticipated Broadway debut of the Academy Award-winning filmmaker.
A limited quantity of $35 rush tickets will be sold each performance day when the box office opens, beginning on Friday, July 28. The box office opens at 10 AM Monday through Saturday and 12 PM on Sundays, beginning August 20. There will be a limit of two tickets per customer and tickets can be purchased in-person only, by cash or credit card. Seat locations will be at the discretion of the box office and based on availability. The limited 12-week engagement will begin previews at Broadway’s Belasco Theatre (111 W 44th Street) on Friday, July 28, 2017.
“Performed live each night just blocks from Trump Tower, The Terms of My Surrender, like Moore’s films, will feature the wry, satirical humor of one of America’s iconic political observers and all-around-shit-disturbers, a fearless Midwesterner not interested in taking any prisoners. Audiences are in for one surprise after another.”
“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 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.”
“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,” said director Michael Mayer.
