News   Howard Katz Star Alfred Molina to Appear on NY1's "On Stage" March 24 Alfred Molina — currently starring in Off-Broadway's Howard Katz — will appear on NY1's "On Stage" television show March 24.

The half-hour theatre show on NY1 airs this weekend starting March 24 at 9:30 AM ET. Check local listings for subsequent airings.

Tony Award winner Doug Hughes directs the Roundabout Theatre Company American premiere presentation of the Patrick Marber-penned drama that began previews Feb. 2. The show opened March 1 at the Laura Pels Theater for a limited run through May 6.

Told through a series of flashbacks, Howard Katz centers on the downward spiral of the eponymous cutthroat talent agent whose life has taken a turn for the worse. Marber directed the world premiere of his work in June 2001 at London's National Theater's Cottesloe space.

Molina (Fiddler on the Roof, Art) leads the cast in the title role opposite Max Baker (Mother Courage), Alvin Epstein (Waiting for Godot), Elizabeth Franz (Brighton Beach Memoirs, Tony Award winner for Death of a Salesman), Jessica Hecht (After the Fall), Patrick Henney (Beauty and the Beast), Edward Hajj (East is East), Euan Morton (Taboo) and Charlotte Parry (The Importance of Being Earnest).

London scribe Marber is known for such stage plays as Closer (which he also adapted for film), Dealer's Choice, The Chain Play, Musicians and After Miss Julie. He was nominated for an Academy Award for his screenplay to the film "Notes on a Scandal" and is now at work on "The Tourist" and "Alan Partridge: The Movie." Tickets to Howard Katz at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street) are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212) 719-1300 or online at roundabouttheatre.org.
