Rupert Grint and Megan Mullally Will Not Extend Run in Broadway's IT'S ONLY A PLAY; New Cast Members to Be Announced Shortly

BWW has just confirmed that Rupert Grint and Megan Mullally will not be extending with IT'S ONLY A PLAY, due to prior commitments. Along with the previously announced Martin Short replacing Nathan Lane, two other cast members are expected to be announced shortly as joining the new cast for the transfer.

Producers Tom Kirdahy, Roy Furman, and Ken Davenport recently announced that Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick has extended his contract with the Broadway's smash hit. Originally scheduled to appear in the production through its original closing date of January 4th, Broderick will continue to star in the production through its new end date on March 29, 2015.

Previously scheduled as a limited engagement through January 4th, the record-breaking It's Only a Play will extend at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre through January 18, 2015 and then transfer to its sibling Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre (242 West 45th Street) starting January 23, 2015 and currently scheduled through March 29, 2015. Tickets are now on sale for all performances through March 29th.

The biggest hit of the new season, It's Only A Play, is now in performances and celebrated its opening night on Thursday, October 9, 2014. Academy Award® winner F. Murray Abraham, Tony® Award winner Matthew Broderick, Emmy® and Tony® Award winner Stockard Channing, international film sensation Rupert Grint, Tony® Award winner Nathan Lane, Emmy® Award winner Megan Mullally, and newcomer Micah Stock star. 3-time Tony® Award winner Jack O'Brien directs.

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 (Rupert Grint), an infamous 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.

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, which was nominated for Best Play at the 2014 Tony® Awards, ended its celebrated Broadway run June 22, 2014 at the Golden Theatre and will be seen in more than twenty countries next year.
