HILARIOUS! It's a satirical tour de force! One of the great comic geniuses of our age, Short is the complete entertainment package.

In the grand tradition of West Side Story and My Fair Lady comes the next great American musical...

If you liked Show Boat and The Miracle Worker, then you'll love Fame Becomes Me, Martin Short's incredibly important new Broadway extravaganza. Backed by a brilliant cast of top Broadway performers and musicians (who constantly steal focus from Mr. Short when he's not looking), and co-created by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (who got tired of counting their money from writing Hairspray), Mr. Short fills the stage with all the unforgettable characters you know and love, plus himself.

In Fame Becomes Me Martin Short brings over 20 years of comic genius to the Broadway stage - and leaves it there.
