Though originally projected for this summer, Jackie Mason's latest solo, Much Ado About Everything, will instead arrive on Broadway in November, according to a Mason spokesperson.
The show has been touring such venues as the Helen Hayes Performing Arts Center in Nyack, NY, and the Laff Stop in Houston, TX, and will continue to do so until the late fall Broadway opening. Neither dates nor theatre have been set.
New Yorkers can get an early peek at the new show when Mason appears at Westbury Music Fair, June 4, in "A Work in Progress" billed as his "last concert appearance prior to Broadway."
Stand-up comedian Mason has had four long-runs on Broadway: The World According to Me, Jackie Mason Brand New, Politically Incorrect and Love Thy Neighbor.
Mason's comedy, delivered in a borscht-belt cantorial style that runs from bemusement to mock anger, generally deals with such subjects as politicians, urban annoyances, and differences between Jews and gentiles.
