What a cast, Part 2!!
F. Murray Abraham.
“It’s Only a Play,” written by Terrence McNally, directed by Jack O’Brien, is another limited run — performances Sept. 4 through Jan. 4.
According to the play’s website:
“It’s opening night of Peter Austin’s (Matthew Broderick) 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 (Nathan Lane),his fledgling producer (Megan Mullally), his erratic leading lady (Stockard Channing), his wunderkind director (Rupert Grint), an infamous drama critic (F. Murray Abraham), and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant (Micah Stock) on his first night in Manhattan.”
Sounds hysterical. Actually, it sounds a little bit like the Marx Brothers’ movie “Room Service.”
