Larry David is one step closer to Broadway! As reported in January, the Seinfeld co-creator was working with Jerry Seinfeld on a play to hit the Great White Way. Now, Showbiz411 reports that the play, titled Shiva, is Broadway bound with David not only writing, but also starring. Scott Rudin will produce.
David won a primetime Emmy Award for his Seinfeld 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.
It is unclear if Seinfeld is still attached to the project. In January, David revealed that the play would “maybe” star Seinfeld, but that he could also be a potential producer or director.
