As previously reported, Griffin will play the Broadway venue March 11-19 in a show titled Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony.
In a statement, Griffin said, "While I have been asked to understudy for Spider-Man and take over for Al when he has finished his run in The Merchant of Venice, instead I have decided to take my very own show to Broadway. Just me and the microphone. Every night will be fresh material due to the revolving door of pop culture, political and celebrity missteps. I won’t be able to hold back. If you are in the market for an evening of laughter, swearing and negativity you’ve found the right show!"
"Dishing on all pop culture and shining a light on inappropriate water cooler talk Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony," according to press notes, "will feature all new material about her hilarious observations and run-ins with celebrities. Let's just say Broadway may never be the same again!"
Show times are scheduled for March 11-12 at 8 PM, March 13 at 3 PM, March 15 at 7 PM and March 16-19 at 8 PM.
Producers are Manny Kladitis, Robert Ahrens and Eva Price.
Tickets are priced $61.50-$121.50 with premium seats available for $196.50 and $226.50. Belasco Theatre is located in Manhattan at 111 West 44th Street.
Neil LaBute's Fat Pig will begin previews at the Belasco Theatre April 12 prior to an official opening April 26.
