Play What I Wrote Graduates New Guest

News   Play What I Wrote Graduates New Guest Film and stage star Jason Biggs was the most recent mystery guest in the Broadway comedy The Play What I Wrote. He appeared from April 18 to April 20.

Biggs recently made his Broadway debut in The Graduate, playing Benjamin Braddock opposite Kathleen Turner's Mrs. Robinson. Prior to that, he made a splash in films in the "American Pie" series.

Biggs followed such cameo performers as Glenn Close, Nathan Lane, Roger Moore, Liam Neeson and Zoe Caldwell.

The Play What I Wrote, a quirky London theatrical sensation, began its American premiere at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre March 7.

Kenneth Branagh directs the work of Hamish McColl, Sean Foley and Eddie Braben, featuring actors McColl and Foley and Toby Jones on stage. The 2002 Olivier Award-winning play "revolves around Hamish, who no longer wants to be part of his comedy double act with Sean," according to production notes. "Instead, he wants to see the play he has written, A Tight Squeeze for the Scarlet Pimple, properly mounted on the Broadway stage. But before this can happen, he needs a major star to play the supporting role to his lead role."

The original London mounting was an homage to the famed-in-Britain-but mostly-unknown-in-the-U.S. comedy team of Ernie Wise and Eric Morecambe. The Lyceum is at 149 W. 45th Street. For ticket information, all (212) 239-6200.
