THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES Tix Now On Sale to American Express Card Members

Tickets for the Broadway revival of John Guare's comedic masterpiece THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES starring Ben Stiller, Edie Falco and Jennifer Jason Leigh are now on sale exclusively to American Express card members and to the general public beginning January 15. THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES, directed by David Cromer, will open on Monday, April 25, 2011 at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48th Street). The strictly limited 16-week engagement will begin previews on Monday, April 4, 2011.

In addition to Ben Stiller as Artie Shaughnessy, Edie Falco as Bananas Shaughnessy and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Bunny Flingus, the cast includes Alison Pill as Corrinna Stroller, Christopher Abbott as Ronnie Shaughnessy, Mary Beth Hurt as Head Nun and Halley Feiffer as Little Nun. Additional casting will be announced soon.

In THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES, Ben Stiller is Artie Shaughnessy, a zookeeper and wannabe songwriter, who is trying to cope with a schizophrenic wife (Falco), an impatient girlfriend (Leigh) and a visit from the Pope, all while sustaining his dream of hitting it big. THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES is a satirical take on celebrity, religion, and the frequent merging of the two.

The production team includes Scott Pask (Scenic Design), Jane Greenwood (Costume Design) & Brian MacDevitt (Lighting Design).

THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES debuted on Broadway in Lincoln Center Theater's Tony-winning 1986 production directed by Jerry Zaks, featuring Ben Stiller in his Broadway and professional debut as Ronnie Shaughnessy. The play was first staged in 1966 by the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center and opened off-Broadway on February 10, 1971 at the Truck and Warehouse Theatre, winning the New York Drama Critics' Circle & Obie Awards for Best American Play. Ben Stiller's mother Anne Meara played Bunny Flingus in that original production.
