Rajiv Joseph's play was a finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize. It marks the playwright's Broadway debut, and the Broadway acting debut of Williams, the comedian and Oscar-winning actor of "Good Will Hunting," "Good Morning Vietnam" and TV's "Mork & Mindy."
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Nov. 17. The Rodgers on West 46th Street sis currently home to In the Heights.
Two-time Tony nominee Moisés Kaufman (I Am My Own Wife) directs the play, which producers characterize this way: "Rajiv Joseph's ferocious comedy…follows the intertwined lives of a tiger (Williams), two American marines and an Iraqi gardener as they roam the streets of Baghdad in search of friendship, redemption and a toilet seat made of gold."
Bengal Tiger will perform Tuesdays at 7 PM, Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 PM, with matinees on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2 PM and Sundays at 3 PM.
Tickets can be reserved by calling Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000 or online at www.ticketmaster.com or www.bengaltigeronbroadway.com.
