The Tony Award-nominated actor (for A Day in the Death of Joe Egg) recently played West Coast gigs and began his current run at the Union Square Theatre Feb. 12. The workshop shows were originally scheduled through Feb. 23, but performances have been through March 8. Izzard performs at 10:30 PM at the current home of Jump.
Stripped! will embark on a national tour starting in April with dates currently slated through August. WestBeth Entertainment presents the tour. The comedian will return to New York City June 27 for a gig at Radio City Music Hall. (Pre-sale is currently available to fan club members. Tickets for the Radio City show go on sale to the public March 16.)
The list of currently scheduled stops follows:
Izzard's past solo shows include the double Emmy Award-winning show Dress to Kill as well as Live at the Ambassadors, Unrepeatable, Circle, Definite Article, Glorious and Sexie. The Yemen-born Brit also boasts many London stage credits — among them the title role in the Lenny Bruce bio Lenny and the world premiere of David Mamet's The Cryptogram. His films include "Ocean's Twelve," "Velvet Goldmine," "Shadow of the Vampire," "The Cat's Meow," "My Super Ex Girlfriend" and "Across the Universe."
