Martin Short, who starred on Broadway in The Goodbye Girl and Little Me, and was to have debuted his new, one-man show in spring 2005, will now do so in fall 2005. No dates are set. According to a press spokesman, the show does not yet have a title. The show is billed as a "play with music," and will feature Short reprising some of his more familiar characters, including Ed Grimley and other creations from his "SCTV" and "Saturday Night Live" days, as well as his later cable creation Jimmy Glick.
The Post reported that the show was inspired by Short's annual Christmas party. "It's like old-fashioned Hollywood with Marty sitting on a piano and acting like Judy Garland," Mr. Shaiman said.
Short recently starred in the Los Angeles debut of The Producers as Leo Bloom.
Billy Crystal, Dame Edna, Whoopi Goldberg and Mario Cantone are all scheduled to premiere one-person shows on Broadway this season.
