MATTHEW BRODERICK and NATHAN LANE lead an all-star cast, including F. MURRAY ABRAHAM, STOCKARD CHANNING, RUPERT GRINT, MEGAN MULLALLY and MICAH STOCK. This hilarious ensemble comes together in a comedy written by four-time Tony winner TERRENCE McNALLY and directed by three-time Tony winner JACK O’BRIEN—a celebration of theatre at its best…and theatre people behaving their not-so-best.
It’s opening night of Peter Austin’s (Matthew Broderick) new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his “best” friend, a television star (Nathan Lane), his novice producer (Megan Mullally), his doped-up diva (Stockard Channing), his genius director (Rupert Grint), a lethal drama critic (F. Murray Abraham), and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant (Micah Stock) on his first night in Manhattan.
It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender—and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage.
With an incredibly starry cast lead by Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane investments in It’s Only a Play sold quick. We were able to leverage our existing relationships (and friendships!) to get involved with such a dynamic production.
We dedicate much of our time to cultivating the relationships that afford our investment team the best opportunities on Broadway. It’s Only a Play is a prime example of the potential results that come from our hard work.
