RARE BROADWAY COMEDY THAT’S AS SMART AS IT IS FUNNY.
A FIERCE, UPROARIOUS NEW PLAY.
Broadway’s Kings of Comedy, Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, are back together again in It’s Only a Play, alongside F. Murray Abraham, Stockard Channing, Megan Mullally, Rupert Grint and Micah Stock.
This hilarious ensemble comes together in a comedy written by four-time Tony winner Terrance McNally and directed by three-time Tony winner Jack O’Brien—a celebration of theatre at its best… and theatre people behaving their not-so-best.
It’s opening night of Peter Austin’s (Matthew Broderick) new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big night with his best friend, a television star (Nathan Lane), his novice producer (Megan Mullally), his doped-up diva (Stockard Channing), his genius director (Rupert Grint), a lethal drama critic (F. Murray Abraham), and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant (Micah Stock) on his first night in Manhattan.
It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender—and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage.
