VIDEO: IT'S ONLY A PLAY's Martin Short on Taking Over for Nathan Lane: 'There's No Greater Performer on Broadway'

IT'S ONLY A PLAY's Martin Short joined the hosts of ABC's THE VIEW yesterday to discuss taking over the lead role from Nathan Lane in the hit Broadway play. "There's no greater performer on Broadway than Nathan Lane, so I was very apprehensive," shared the comedian. Watch the appearance in full below!

Broadway's record-breaking, star-studded smash hit comedy It's Only a Play by 4-time Tony Award winnerTerrence McNally, recently welcomed Martin Short, two-time Tony Award winnerKatie Finneran and Screen Actors Guild Award-winning "30 Rock" alum Maulik Pancholy - in his Broadway debut.

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.

The design team for It's Only A Play includes scenic design by Tony® winner Scott Pask, costume design by Academy Award® and Tony® winnerAnn Roth, lighting design by Philip Rosenberg, and sound design by Fitz Patton.
