"FISH IN THE DARK," the new comedy from Larry David, starts previews TONIGHT on Broadway

Larry David, co-creator of Seinfeld and creator/star of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, will begin previews tonight starring in his Broadway Debut, FISH IN THE DARK, which he also wrote, at the Cort Theatre. Heading into tonight's first preview, this world premiere comedy has already racked up $13.5 million in advance sales at the box office. That incredible number, which beats not only the great pre-sale number of the current Matthew Broderick/Martin Short hit It's Only a Play, but also, according to producers, beats the previous all time record for a pre-sale of a play on Broadway held by the 2013 revival of Harold Pinter's Betrayal (which starred Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz).

The play is directed by Anna D. Shapiro (Tony winning Director of August Osage County), and the cast includes David, Rita Wilson, Jayne Houdyshell, Rosie Perez, Ben Shenkman, Lewis J. Stadlen, Jerry Adler, Mary Louise Burke, Jake Cannavale, Jenn Lyon, Jonny Orsini, and Molly Ranson. Fish in the Dark, according to press notes, is described as a "comedy about a death in the family." More will be known for this already sure fire hit after it plays tonight. The production is produced by Scott Rudin.

Show times during previews are Monday-Saturday at 8 PM with matinees Wednesday and Saturday at 2 PM. Beginning March 10, show times will be Tuesday and Thursday at 7 PM and Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 8 PM with matinees Wednesday and Saturday at 2 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.

Tickets are priced $65-$155 at Telecharge.com but you should get them now, because they won't be around for long! Student Rush/Discounts have not yet been announced.
