Jerry Seinfeld's search for a summer home may soon be over. The comedian and sitcom legend will announce the location and dates of his forthcoming Broadway gig within the next two weeks, said a spokesman at HBO Original Productions. HBO plans to tape the concert for a future television special.

The spokesman said that a meeting regarding the concert had been held late last week, but no decision had been reached as to which Broadway theatre Seinfeld would occupy. Chances are, the stand-up was waiting for the announcement of the Tony nominees; traditionally, a number of Broadway shows are weeded out in the wake of the nominations. Currently, only two Broadway theatres are empty: the Richard Rodgers (which is booked for the fall), and the Eugene O'Neill, where The Herbal Bed recently closed.

Seinfeld will precede the New York concert series with a booking in Australia, where it was recently announced he would stage a handful of June performances in Melbourne and Sydney.

Also, The Albemarle's of London website reports that Seinfeld will make his West End debut doing two stand-up gigs, July 12, at the Palladium.

The Broadway stint, slated for August, is tentatively titled I'm Telling You for the Last Time.
