The production, which opened July 13, is directed by Terry Johnson, who recently won the Tony Award for Best Director of a Musical for his Broadway revival of La Cage aux Folles.
Set in the 1970's, The Prisoner of Second Avenue is a black comedy depicting a New York couple, Mel (Goldblum) and Edna Edison (Ruehl), enduring the trials and tribulations of city life. Mel is made redundant and the stress of an economic crisis and urban life pushes him into having a nervous breakdown. The family gathers to offer support, with Edna stoically bearing the burden of his disintegration and self-pity.
Here is a first look at the show:
