Larry David hits sublime comic heights
The GuardianBuy Tickets
His misanthropic grump memorably starred in The Producers on Curb Your Enthusiasm, but Larry David has yet to tread the boards in real life. That's all set to change with the premiere of Fish in the Dark, his Broadway debut as both an actor and playwright. While the plot of the play is yet to be revealed, David told the NY Times that it's "about a death in the family". He also revealed that it would be his first appearance in a play "since the eighth grade".
David first came to prominence as the co-creator of 90s comedy Seinfeld, the 'show about nothing' which introduced the world to Jerry, George, Kramer and Elaine (and Newman) during its hugely successful nine season run. After leaving Seinfeld, David returned with Curb Your Enthusiasm, a largely improvisational sitcom which delights in engineering one socially awkward situation after another for its central character (David, playing a version of himself). He's also appeared in Woody Allen's Whatever Works, and directed TV movie Clear History for HBO.
As if David's name wasn't enough, Fish in the Dark has some considerable pedigree when it comes to the other creatives. The play is under the stewardship of powerhouse film and theatre producer Scott Rudin, who scored recent Broadway hits with A Raisin in the Sun and This is our Youth. The director is Anna D. Shapiro, who won a Tony Award in 2008 for her work on August: Osage County and whose credits also include the James Franco starring Of Mice and Men.
