A one-man Broadway play by liberal filmmaker Michael Moore is receiving poor reviews after its Thursday debut, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Moore's play, "The Terms of My Surrender," is a "hilarious satirical tour through the depraved new world we find ourselves in since appointing a madman as the leader of the free world," Moore's website proclaims.

One critic noted "cringing" during the play. "Michael Moore looked like a fish out of water—or was it a deer in headlights?" wrote Charles McNulty in The Los Angeles Times.

"I found myself cringing at the self-congratulatory applause that would break out when he would utter one of his pieties… and I lost patience with the way he seemed to want both sympathy for being a victim of the right and adulation for being the champion of all mankind," McNulty added.

"Every story ends in the glorification of Michael Moore," McNulty wrote.

"Audiences hoping for a bit of feel-good liberal therapy, let alone a good show, may be disappointed to find that Mr. Moore isn't very interested in them. He's not preaching to the choir: he's bragging to it," wrote Jesse Green in The New York Times.

"The title of the show—which, be forewarned, is more political rally than song and dance spectacular, or piece of theatre—is baffling and makes no sense. The terms of Moore' s "surrender" are nonexistent, or easily negated anyway," wrote Tim Teeman in The Daily Beast.

Writing in Variety, Marilyn Stasio had some positive comments about the play: "He makes his revolutionary pitch with surprising sweetness," Stasio wrote.
