Comedian and filmmaker Mike Birbiglia wraps up the Broadway engagement of his solo show Mike Birbiglia: The New One January 20. The show arrived on Broadway last fall following an acclaimed, sold-out run Off-Broadway in summer 2018.
The New One began performances on Broadway October 25, 2018. The show is written and performed by Birbiglia, featuring additional writing by Jennifer Hope Stein and direction by Seth Barrish.
The Broadway production features set design by Beowulf Boritt, lighting design by Aaron Copp, and sound design by Leon Rothenberg. Mike Birbiglia’s The New One is produced on Broadway by Kevin McCollum. This American Life’s Ira Glass is executive producer, Joe Birbiglia is associate producer, and Mike Lavoie serves as production consultant.
Birbiglia's recent shows include My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend and Thank God for Jokes, which were both filmed for Netflix. In addition to performing live, Birbiglia wrote, directed, and starred in the films Sleepwalk with Me and Don’t Think Twice.
