Photos: On the Red Carpet for Opening Night of Mike Birbiglia: THE OLD MAN & THE POOL

The Old Man & the Pool runs through Sunday, January 15, 2023.

Mike Birbiglia: The Old Man & the Pool, the acclaimed new solo play, written and performed by Screen Actors Guild, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and Lortel Award winner Mike Birbiglia, just celebrated opening night at the Vivian Beaumont Theater at Lincoln Center, where it runs through Sunday, January 15, 2023.

One of the greatest comedic storytellers, at the top of his game. Following his award-winning show The New One, Mike Birbiglia has returned to Broadway with a coming-of-middle-age story about when life takes a dive - into a highly-chlorinated YMCA pool. Propelled by his singular, insightful voice and everyman style, Mike Birbiglia: The Old Man & the Pool is a wildly hilarious and deeply moving play.

BroadwayWorld was there for the big night and you can check out photos from the star-studded red carpet below!
