The new play is described as "a new high-octane, verbal cage match about love, fidelity, and misplaced haberdashery. Jackie and Veronica have been in love since the 8th grade. But now, Jackie is on parole and living clean and sober under the guidance of his sponsor, Ralph D, while still living and loving with his volatile soul mate Veronica who is fiercely loving, but far from sober. Still, their love is pure. And true. Nothing can come between them — except a hat."
On the "Late Show," Rock fills Letterman in on the hardships of performing eight shows a week and putting on his own makeup.
The production will officially open on April 11 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.
