Larry David to star in his own Broadway play
Larry will make his broadway debut this winter in a play he wrote titled, view Fish in the Dark. In a phone interview with The New York Times he described it as a comedy about a death in a family, view with about 15 characters, and that he was playing “somebody very similar to Larry David – it might even be Larry David with a different name.”
He was quoted:
“I’ll be without anything that I’ve become used to. I haven’t been in a play since the eighth grade, when I did ‘Charley’s Aunt.’ I seem to remember wearing a dress. That’s it. And I’m not even really an actor. But I’m still sleeping at night, and I hope that continues.”
He was encouraged to act in it by producer Scott Rudin. Fish in the Dark will be directed by Anna D. Shapiro, who won a Tony Award in 2008 for staging “August: Osage County.
Regarding a new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry said he hadn’t ruled out another season, “I’m not going to mentally do that to myself right now. But if I did do another season, this play would push that schedule back.”
