Could Rochelle, Rochelle, the story of a young girl’s strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk, be heading to Broadway for real? Probably not, but Seinfeld creators Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David have been hinting about a “gigantic project” they’re working on together—and according to Showbiz411.com, it’s a Broadway play!
David revealed that the new play would “maybe” star Seinfeld, but he also might direct or produce. “We’re talking about it,” the Curb Your Enthusiasm creator said. No additional details about the project have been announced, but we’ve got our fingers crossed it’s La Cocina, George Costanza’s popular off-Broadway play about a Mexican chef who cooks tamales onstage.
Seinfeld and David first teamed up in 1988 to write an NBC pilot called The Seinfeld Chronicles. The series, renamed Seinfeld, went on to become one of the most successful TV shows in history, garnering 30 Emmy nominations over nine seasons. David won a primetime Emmy Award for his episode The Contest in 1993. Seinfeld is currently the star of the web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and the ninth season of David’s HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm is currently in the works.
