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.
