Actress KellyAnn Corcoran assembled a half-dozen fringe scribes from veterans like Greg Allen and Jenny Magnus to relative newcomers like Jennifer Moniz and asked them to "write the Hillary they imagined." The resulting 65 minutes of songs, scenes, and monologues is less an exposé of Mrs. Clinton's character than a skewering of the systems that sustain her—or anyone in high political office. While the show gets off to a shaky start with a couple overly cautious musical numbers, once Hillary's confronted by an egomaniacal, indecipherable Donald Trump (a doofy, menacing Mark Chrisler), the show takes off. By the final section, in which Hillary finally speaks her unfiltered mind about the horrors of America's global interventionism, you may be ready to leave the planet for good. —Justin Hayford
