Spoofing the musical A Chorus Line, Close previewed what host James Corden dubbed A Clinton Line.
“I really need this job,” Close crooned, performing the musical’s “I Hope I Get It.” She continued, “Please God, I need this job. I’ve got to get this job.”
Before Close’s bit, Girls star Andrew Rannells debuted his own “new” musical, The Book of Moron (a spoof on The Book of Mormon).

Dressed in a short-sleeve white shirt and a red tie, Rannells wore a wig just like Donald Trump‘s coif.
“Hello, my name is Donald Trump,” Rannells sang, matching the tune of the show’s opening number, “Hello!”. “And I would like to build a wall that goes straight through your house.”
It’s anybody’s guess how the Playbill for each show might look like.
