It's Only a Play

— Martin Short and Matthew Broderick star in Terrence McNally's comedy.


It's Only a Play is set on the opening night of Peter Austin's new play, as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit.

There's no business like show business.

*Please Note: Martin Short will play his final performance on March 29. Nathan Lane returns as James Wicker on March 31.
