A starry Broadway revival of John Guare's House of Blue Leaves is in previews at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

In The House of Leaves, "Ben Stiller is Artie Shaughnessy, a zookeeper and wannabe songwriter, who is trying to cope with a schizophrenic wife (Edie Falco), an impatient girlfriend (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and a visit from the Pope, all while sustaining his dream of hitting it big. [The play] is a satirical take on celebrity, religion, and the frequent merging of the two."

Director David Cromer's cast features Ben Stiller as Artie Shaughnessy, Edie Falco as Bananas Shaughnessy and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Bunny Flingus and also includes Thomas Sadoski as Billy Einhorn, Alison Pill as Corrinna Stroller, Mary Beth Hurt as Head Nun, Christopher Abbott as Ronnie Shaughnessy, Halley Feiffer as Little Nun, Susan Bennett as Second Nunn, Jimmy Davis as Military Policeman and Tally Sessions as White Man.
