F. Murray Abraham and Stockard Channing Join Megan Mullally & More in Broadway-Bound IT'S ONLY A PLAY
Producers Tom Kirdahy, Roy Furman, and Ken Davenport announced today that Academy Award® winner F. Murray Abraham, Tony Award® winner Matthew Broderick, Tony Award® winner Stockard Channing, Tony Award®winner Nathan Lane, Emmy Award® winner Megan Mullally, and Micah Stock will star on Broadway in a newly revised version of Terrence McNally's uproarious comedy, It's Only a Play, which first premiered in New York in 1986 at the Manhattan Theatre Club. Tony Award® winner Jack O'Brien will direct. Additional casting will be announced shortly. The production will play a strictly limited 17-week engagement at Broadway's Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street) beginning this fall, 2014, with an opening night set for Thursday, October 9.
In It's Only a Play, 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 First Night with his best friend, a television star (Nathan Lane), his fledgling producer (Megan Mullally), his erratic leading lady (Stockard Channing), his wunderkind director, an infamous drama critic, and a wide-eyed coat check attendant on his first night in Manhattan. It's alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender - reminding audiences why there's no business like show business. Thank God!
Mr. McNally-a four-time Tony® Award winning playwright-recently celebrated the premiere of his 20th Broadway production,Mothers and Sons, which marks his 50th year on Broadway. Mothers and Sons is nominated for Best Play at the 2014 Tony®Awards, and currently plays at the Golden Theatre.
