Story for It's Only A Play

Broadway’s Kings of Comedy, NATHAN LANE and MATTHEW BRODERICK, are back together again in It's Only a Play, alongside F. MURRAY ABRAHAM, STOCKARD CHANNING, KATIE FINNERAN, T.R. KNIGHT and MICAH STOCK.

This hilarious ensemble comes together in a comedy written by four-time Tony winner TERRENCE McNALLY and directed by three-time Tony winner JACK O’BRIEN—a celebration of theatre at its best…and theatre people behaving their not-so-best.

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 novice producer (Katie Finneran), his doped-up diva (Stockard Channing), his genius director (T.R. Knight), a lethal drama critic (F. Murray Abraham), and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant (Micah Stock) on his first night in Manhattan.

It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender—and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage.
