Michael Moore is Broadway-bound with his criticism of President Donald Trump, The New York Times reports.

The filmmaker on Monday announced his plans for a one-man Broadway show called "The Terms of My Surrender," which starts in July and runs for 12 weeks.

"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," he told the Times.

Moore has publicly criticized Trump and spearheaded rallies and events in opposition to his agenda. The poster for his show reads, "Can a Broadway show bring down a sitting president?"

"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," Moore said. "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."

Moore's shtick has mostly been in documentary filmmaking — he won an Oscar in 2003 for "Bowling for Columbine," which explores the Columbine High School massacre in 1999, and most recently produced Michael Moore in Trumpland, a solo performance showing Moore on stage discussing the 2016 elections.
