Tickets are now on sale for the Billy Crystal's Tony Award-winning one-man show 700 Sundays. Directed by Des McAnuff, 700 Sundays will play Broadway's Imperial Theatre, with previews set to begin on November 5 and opening night scheduled for November 13. The limited run will close on January 5.
Performed and written by Crystal (with additional material by Alan Zweibel), 700 Sundays takes an autobiographical look at the actor and perennial Oscar host's life and the people and events that shaped him. Crystal's dad, who died when the comedian was just 15, worked two or three jobs, leaving only "700 Sundays" for them to spend together. The solo show deals with Crystal's youth, growing up in the jazz world of Manhattan, his teenage years, and finally adulthood. It is about family and fate, loving and loss.
700 Sundays originally opened in 2004 at the Broadhurst Theatre and ran for 163 performances. The show won the 2005 Tony Award for Special Theatrical Experience. The show features scenic design by David F. Weiner, lighting design by David Lee Cuthbert, projection design by Michael Clark and sound design by Steve Canyon Kennedy.
