That's right theatre fans. The show with the word in the title that you can't say on television is about to go on sale. Now it doesn't take a genius to figure out which word I'm talking about. The new play which from here on in I will refer as "The Hat" is set to begin previews at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on March 15 with opening night scheduled for April 11.
The show stars Bobby Cannavale (Jackie), Elizabeth Rodriguez (Veronica), Annabella Sciorra (Victoria), Yul Vazquez (Cousin Julio) and comic Chris Rock (Ralph D.)who will be making his Broadway debut. Directing the show is Tony winner Anna D. Shapiro who scored a huge hit three years ago with August:Osage County.
Here is a brief description of the show according to a production source. "Jackie and Veronica have been in love since the 8th grade. But now, Jackie is on parole and living clean and sober under the guidance of his sponsor, Ralph D, while still living and loving with his volatile soul mate Veronica who is fiercely loving, but far from sober. Still, their love is pure. And true. Nothing can come between them — except a hat."
Ever since the show was first announced several months ago we have gotten countless calls from people asking for tickets to the "Chris Rock Play". Now while he may be the main reason most will go to see the show there are other talented actor's involved as well as the play's author Stephen Adly Guirgis who has been a major force Off-Broadway for years now.Here's hoping the show is a big success and will encourage more new writers to try their luck on the Great White Way. Until next time theatre fans.
