Will Ferrell takes Bush to Broadway

“Step Brothers” and “Anchorman” creators Will Ferrell and Adam McKay have teamed up to bring George Bush to the stage.


Ferrell and McKay also worked together on US TV show Saturday Night Live and co-founded comedy website Funny or Die.


The production will open to the public at the Cort Theatre on 1 February, with previews from 20 January.


It is expected that Ferrell and McKay will write the show’s script, following up on their previous screenwriting work for their cinematic outings.


Ferrell’s impersonation of President Bush has become a hit on YouTube, with close to 5.5 million views.


The actor’s latest comic caper Step Brothers made its debut in the UK and Ireland box office at number one last month.
