The upcoming Broadway comedy POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive has moved up the opening night, to become eligible for 2022 Tony Award nominations.

The play by The Morning Show writer Selina Fillinger and featuring an all-female cast officially will open with the April 27 matinee performance rather than the originally planned opening night of May 9. The new date puts the production within the Tony eligibility window.

The production’s first preview date remains Thursday, April 14, at the Shubert Theatre.

Aaron Tveit

Moulin Rouge! is losing Aaron Tveit, Natalie Mendoza, Tam Mutu and Ricky Rojas will play their final performance in Moulin Rouge! on May 8. The actors have been in the show since the musical’s 2018 Boston run. Mendoza assumed the role of Satine when the production resumed performances this fall.

Replacements for the four roles will be announced at a later date.

From March 31 to May 1 The American theatre’s most fascinating playwright of conscience (AP) premieres his searing, incisive, and colorful new play tackling our inescapable present—right here, right now. In I’ll Be Seein’ Ya, written by two-time Pulitzer finalist and Tony nominee Jon Robin Baitz (Other Desert Cities, Vicuña), Allie Murchow (Christine Lahti) dreams of a better yesterday and bearable tomorrow in a rapidly changing urban America. She hides within Hollywood fantasies and half-truths to escape the chaos of 2020 raging outside her L.A. apartment and to quiet her chatty brother who won’t get out of her head. But delusions of glamour can’t cover up what’s really going on.

Fully staged and filmed for streaming on the Digital Stage, this poignant and unflinchingly funny production comes directly to living rooms across the country to reveal new truths about the hot-button issues every American has felt.
