Michael Moore’s Made a Broadway Show To Bring Down Trump. Now It’s The One Getting Shut Down
In August, left wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore opened a show on Broadway aimed at bringing down the Trump presidency. ‘The Terms of My Surrender’ was the name of the show. Now, it is Moore who has surrendered to the box office. The show was a failure with the Broadway crowd and closed this week.

According to the Wall Street Journal:
Film director Michael Moore may have arrived on Broadway with the self-professed goal of taking down a sitting president.
But in the end, his politically liberal-minded show, “The Terms of My Surrender,” which closed this past weekend, failed to wow at the box office.
In its 13-week run, including a preview period, the show had ticket sales of $4.2 million, according to BroadwayWorld.com, a theater website that tracks grosses based on data from the Broadway League, a trade group. That figure represents only about 49% of the show’s potential gross.
The move should not surprise anyone. No one ever accused Moore of being a good capitalist.
