Jason Alexander to Take on Lead Role in Fish in the Dark! (Cue Bassline)

Seinfeld-lovers rejoice! Comic genius Larry David has decided to extend his smash play Fish in the Dark for another six weeks! This means six more weeks of hilarity and laugh-out-loud entertainment! However, starting June 9th, Mr. David will be replaced by veteran actor Jason Alexander. Jason Alexander is not only known but adored for his role as George Constanza on Seinfeld. 

Fish in the Dark is a play written and created by Larry David. It focuses on 15 characters and the hilarity that ensues among them after there is a death in the family. Leave it to Larry David to take a somber idea and turn it into a piece that generates laughs here and there.

Now as a die-hard Seinfeld fan, I am absolutely ecstatic about the addition of Jason Alexander in the play's cast! Now, don't worry, Larry David is still very much active in this play. He wrote it! I think Mr. Costanmean Mr. Alexander and Mr. David will have a wonderful chemistry working on this play together. Working together on Seinfeld, they both developed the character of George Costanza to such an extent that he was outrageously entertaining while embodying Larry David himself. Lately, I've been yearning ("Do you ever yearn, George?") to see such a character that is perfectly neurotic and hysteric. I'm eager to see if Mr. Alexander will channel some of that character in this play. However, one can't dwell on the past and if he decides to bring something new to the table, then I welcome it. I'm confident that the pairing of Larry David and Jason Alexander will lead to a more than memorable performance. 

The show also has other impressive cast members including Rita Wilson, Jayne Houdyshell, and Ben Shenkman. The show plays at the Cort Theatre. Now, you can still catch Mr. David on the stage for this play. He will be performing from now to June 7th. Mr. Alexander will begin his run in Fish in the Dark starting June 9th until July 19; the play's closing show. Here at Applause, you can purchase tickets for Fish in the Dark starring Larry David or Jason Alexander. We will have tickets for the show til July 19th. Call now so you don't miss out on one of the must-see plays of the spring!

'Til next time theatre lovers and Seinfeld lovers!

The Heidi Chronicles Premieres on Broadway Tonight!

The Heidi Chronicles opens today on Broadway and there’s quite a few reasons to be excited. For those not aware, this is actually a revival of the 1989 Tony-winning play that aired off-Broadway. Even back then, it made quite a commotion; as it addressed the social journey of women throughout the previous 20-30 years and their ever-flourishing niche in society. Told through the story of a young woman’s life, The Heidi Chronicles challenged the social constraints put on women by a long history of male-focused culture.

It’s made a big comeback into the theatre-loving community; premiering on the Great White Way with a phenomenal cast! In her latest stage role, Elisabeth Moss plays the lead Heidi Holland; a driven, independent young woman in the 1960s who wants to live happily without the sacrifices and restraints that women faced then. I want to focus on Elisabeth Moss for a bit because I think she is a magnificent choice to play Heidi. If you don't know, Elisabeth Moss is known for her role on the smash television show Mad Men; in which she plays a—you guessed it— strong, independent, young woman. Even in her other roles, it is apparent that she has a knack for playing such bold and confident women. I think Elisabeth Moss and The Heidi Chronicles make such a great pairing and that this show will be quite an experience.

The Heidi Chronicles also stars Jason Biggs and Bryce Pinkham and premieres tonight at the Music Box Theatre. The Heidi Chronicles is just one of many of the new, exciting shows coming out this Spring. Tickets are available here at Applause. So call now! 

Until next time, theatre lovers!
