After trying his hands in films, television and books, Michael Moore will now star in a new one-man Broadway show titled "The Terms of My Surrender." The show — whose tagline reads “Can a Broadway show take down a sitting President?” — will target President Donald Trump, a topic close to the heart of Moore, who is staunchly anti-Trump.

According to the Shubert Organization, a New York City-based theater producing organization which has picked up Moore's theatrical debut, it will be directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer. The 12-week engagement will begin previews at Broadway’s Belasco Theatre on July 28, with the official opening night set for Aug. 10.

“I think what the world needs right now is Michael Moore standing on a Broadway stage sharing his hilarious stories and incendiary political perspective, creating the kind of dialogue that can only happen in the theater,” Mayer said.

The design team for "The Terms of My Surrender" includes a set by Tony Award winner David Rockwell, lighting design by four-time Tony Award winner Kevin Adams, sound design by two-time Tony Award winner Brian Ronan, costumes by Tony Award nominee Jeff Mahshie, video and projection designs by Andrew Lazarow and movement direction by Noah Racey. The executive producer for the show will be 101 Productions, Ltd., according to the Shubert Organization.

In an interview with the New York Times, Moore said: "It’s a humorous play about a country that’s just elected a madman — I mean, there’s really no other way to put it," adding: "We’re 10 blocks from Trump Tower, we’re in the corporate capital of America, we’re in the financial capital of America, we’re in the media capital of America... If one was going to stand on a stage and do the things that I’m going to do, there’s only one place to do it, and it’s here in this city and it’s right here at the epicenter of creative expression and free speech."

He also said: “I operate under the hope that he won’t be president for very long."

Moore's play would not focus solely on Trump.

“To say it’s just about Trump would simplify it,” he said. "I think people will find themselves laughing one minute and wanting to go look for some pitchforks and torches the next," he added.

Moore also said he was experimenting with theater as it is a platform which lets him interact with his audience instantly. Trump is the first president who can be brought down with humor and satire, according to Moore.

The show is reportedly partially scripted and partially improvised. Every show, which will be 90 minutes long, will be different, with Moore and surprise guest stars commenting on the news of the day.

"The event of the show will actually begin as people assemble outside the Belasco Theater and will continue after the show’s over — there might be some impromptu excursions after the show to places that might be nearby. You can do the math," Mayer said referring to Trump Tower. "I think everyone’s going to be having a unique, exciting and politically incendiary experience," he said.
