PlayBlog   Ben Stiller and Cast of The House of Blue Leaves Chat About Revival (Video) The House of Blue Leaves is set to open on Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theatre on April 25. Ben Stiller makes his way back to The House, having made his Broadway debut in the earlier 1986 production; the play was first seen Off-Broadway in the 1970s.

This time, he plays Artie Shaughnessy and leads the cast in the drama that tells the story of "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."

The cast talked to Sirius XM host Julie James at Sardi's Restaurant in Times Square about their characters, the themes of the show, and their own personal experiences behind the closed doors of The House of Blue Leaves.
