NEW YORK (AP) - A musical about former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton will have its debut as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival next month.

"Clinton" was nominated for best new musical at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Its creators are Australian brothers Paul and Michael Hodge.

The musical features two "Bill Clinton" characters. Karl Kenzler will play W.J. Clinton; Duke LaFoon will play "Billy."

Alet Taylor will play Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The Hodges' description of their work asserts that "politics is show business for ugly people.'"

It'll be performed at The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at the Pershing Square Signature Center July 18 through July 25.

Other characters include Newt Gingrich, Monica Lewinsky and Eleanor Roosevelt.

    Cardinal, leaders meet about NYPD-community relations

    Timothy Cardinal Dolan gathered religious and city leaders with the focus of how to ease tensions between police and the community in advance of this Saturday's march to protest the death of Eric Garner. Some of the leaders in this group are rarely photographed together, let alone seated at the same table. But they were brought together over concerns about possible protest violence by the cardinal, one of the most powerful figures in the city and who commands respect across the board.
