Until August 1, 2015

Curb Your Enthusiasm creator Larry David makes his playwriting Broadway debut with Fish in the Dark. After starring as the lead in the production since it opened, David now hands over to Seinfeld alumnus Jason Alexander. Produced by Scott Rudin (Book of Mormon) and directed by Anna D. Shapiro (August: Osage County), the play centers around a death in the family.

The story of a dog who comes between married New York couple Greg and Kate, Sylvia is a warm and witty comedy from A. R. Gurney. 2015 Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford (You Can't Take It With You) stars as the titular character, an anthropomorphised mutt whose unquestioning adoration of her master results in marital strife. Fresh off his stint on Broadway comedy It's Only A Play, two time Tony recipient Matthew Broderick stars as Greg.
