Producer David Pugh and Mike Nichols are joining forces to bring the London hit, The Play What I Wrote, to Broadway.

The show will play a Shubert theatre in March 2003. Playbill On-Line had previously reported the show's imminent arrival, but only recently was a specific month attached to the opening.

The Play What I Wrote broke box office records during its hugely successful run at Wyndham's Theatre. It closed on May 5. The comedy will return to Wyndham's Theatre for a second season in October.

The Morecambe and Wise tribute comedy, starring Hamish McColl and Sean Foley, directed by Kenneth Branagh, will start previews Oct. 30, open on November 5 and is scheduled to run to Jan. 4,. 2003.

The idea behind the closing was to give The Right Size comedy team (Foley and McColl) and their co-star Toby Jones a break, after a strenuous six months or so of their highly physical performances in the West End. The Play What I Wrote is a tribute to Morecambe and Wise, the television double act who were a British national institution in the 1960s and 1970s.
