A hilarious new play about an aspiring playwright on the verge of making his Broadway debut, and a notoriously difficult actress who could ruin the production...and his career!
This summer, Tony Award® nominee JEREMY JORDAN (Newsies) joins Tony Award winners HARRIET HARRIS (Thoroughly Modern Millie) and ANDRÉ DE SHIELDS (Hadestown) in the world premiere of the new backstage comedy WHEN PLAYWRIGHTS KILL, written by MATTHEW LOMBARDO (Looped) and directed by NOAH HIMMELSTEIN (The Lucky Star).
This hilarious new play tells the story of Jack Hawkins (Jordan), an aspiring playwright on the verge of making his Broadway debut. But after being forced to hire the notoriously difficult actress Brooke Remington (Harris), his play's out-of-town tryout in Boston proves disastrous. Unwilling to bring the production to New York and unable to convince the producer to fire her, Jack knows there is only one solution that will save his play and career...Brooke Remington must be stopped!
