Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick are back!

If you loved The Producers, you'll be thrilled to hear that Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick will perform together on Broadway again! The duo are set revive their on-stage chemistry in Terrence McNally's showbiz send-up, "It's Only a Play," alongside screen and stage star, Megan Mullally and Harry Potter alum in his Broadway debut, Rupert Grint! (Both will play through January 4.) It's Only A Play is the perfect follow-up to the success of The Producers, as it is a tongue-in-cheek take on the trials and tribulations theatre business and the characters that inhabit its world.

Nathan Lane's performance in 2001's The Producers earned him a Tony Award, with the show itself scooping up 12 awards in total! Matthew Broderick earned his Tony Stripes back in 1983 with his performance in the play Brighton Beach Memoirs. This revival of It's Only a Play will be directed by producer-director-writer Jack O'Brien, who has three Tony Awards to his name himself as well as numerous other industry awards.

What is It's Only a Play about?

It's Only a Play is set on the eve of 'The Golden Egg's' opening night, where the nervous playwright (Broderick), his egotistical best friend (Lane), and a host of other characters from the Broadway business - including a Broadway starlet, a cut-throat theatre critic and the play's director - anxiously await the first reviews.
