Bush is on his way out of the White House. To honor, or perhaps dishonor, our soon-to-be past president and his eight years of service, Will Ferrell is bringing his impersonation of Bush to Broadway. Titled You’re Welcome America. A Final Night with George W. Bush
, Ferrell's production is a one-man show written by the SNL
alum and directed by his writing partner Adam McKay. It opens for previews on Jan. 20, the day Bush steps out of office, and will be available to the public from Feb. 1-Mar. 15. at the Cort Theater in New York.
According to Variety,
"Plot of the show remains sketchy, but the title and timing suggest a
Bush caricature and plenty of topical humor." Previously, the New York
Post said that the project would "be autobiographical and include anecdotes
about the comedian's work on 'Saturday Night Live."
