Billy Crystal returns to Broadway
NEW YORK (AP) – There are a few more Sundays left in Billy Crystal.
The star of “City Slickers” and “When Harry Met Sally” said Tuesday he’ll reprise his funny and poignant one-man show “700 Sundays” on Broadway for a 9-week stand this fall.
“700 Sundays” was a Broadway success during the 2004-2005 season, playing to sold-out houses and winning a Tony Award for special theatrical experience. Crystal took it on the road, both in America and abroad.
Previews will begin Nov. 5 at the Imperial Theatre, with an opening night set for Nov. 13. The final performance is scheduled for Jan. 5.
Loss triggers the stories in “700 Sundays,” the centerpiece being the death of Crystal’s father, Jack, who died of a heart attack at age 54 when his son, Billy, was 15.
