BILLYS BACK ON BROADWAY: Tony and Emmy winner Billy Crystal will return to Broadway in the new musical comedy Mr. Saturday Night in the role of Buddy Young Jr., a role he played in the original 1992 Columbia Pictures film of the same name. Performances are set to begin at the Nederlander Theatre on March 1, 2022 ahead of an opening night on March 31, 2022.

Creating and portraying the 75-year-old comedian Buddy Young Jr. in the film of Mr. Saturday Night was one of the highlights of my career 30 years ago I needed 5 hours of make-up to play him, now I just show up, said Crystal in a statement.

Its been a joy to collaborate once again with the brilliant and hilarious Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel, my co-writers from the film, and to be joined by the wonderful team of Jason Robert Brown, Amanda Green, Ellenore Scott and directed by John Rando. And it doesnt get any better than sharing a stage with Randy Graff, my old friend David Paymer, and Chasten Harmon. Together we have created a truly funny and moving musical comedy.

I cant wait to come back to Broadway next year at the Nederlander Theatre.
