Hillary: Likable or not? Likable enough? And if not, why not?
Those much-discussed questions, asked and answered ad nauseam over the course of her two terms as a presidential wife, and her two presidential bids, are explored yet again in “Hillary and Clinton,” a smart but slight — and slightly disquieting — play by Lucas Hnath at Broadway’s Golden Theatre. In the course of this 90-minute comedy-drama Hnath attempts to excavate the truth, or perhaps I should say a truth, beneath the familiar perceptions of Hillary Clinton, the play’s semi-fictionalized central figure, and perhaps one of the most semi-fictionalized people in American political history.
