Larry David Coming to Broadway

Actor, writer, and general funny man Larry David, the creator behind the smash hit TV shows Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld, will be coming to Broadway this season.  Mr. David's play, A Fish in the Dark, will mark his Broadway debut, both as an actor and a writer.  Joining Mr. David in the cast are Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe nominee Rosie Perez, two-time Tony nominee Jane Houdyshell, Johnny Orsini, Jerry Adler, and Jake Cannavale.  Tony-winner Anna D. Shapiro, who is currently working on the Broadway production of This is Our Youth, will direct Mr. David's play.  Ironically, both of the plays Ms. Shapiro is directing this season will be playing at the Cort Theatre, with Mr. David's play beginning previews on February 2nd and officially opening on March 5th.  The design team includes Todd Rosenthall (sets), Ann Roth (costumes), and Brian MacDevitt (lights).

Mr. David has described the play as "a comedy with around 15 characters that explores a family death."
