Tickets are now available for the new production of Terrence McNally’s It’s Only a Play. The Jack O’Brien-helmed comedy will star Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Megan Mullally, Rupert Grint, F. Murray Abraham and Stockard Channing. Performances begin at Broadway's Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on August 28. Opening night is scheduled for October 9.
It's Only a Play is set on the opening night of Broderick's character Peter Austin's 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 (Lane), his fledgling producer (Mullally), his erratic leading lady (Channing), his wunderkind director (Grint), an infamous drama critic, and a wide-eyed coat check attendant on his first night in Manhattan. There's no business like show business.
The star-studded comedy will run for a 17-week engagement through January 4, 2015. Micah Stock will also join the cast in his Broadway debut.
