"Billy Crystal has been a beloved member of the HBO family for more than three decades," said Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming, in a statement. "It's thrilling to us that he decided to let us film this legendary theatrical event."
The limited nine-week engagement, which officially opened at the Imperial Theatre Nov. 13, following previews that began Nov. 5, continues through Jan. 5, 2014.
The autobiographical 700 Sundays is described as "an original two-act play in which Billy plays numerous characters that have influenced who he is today. It deals with his youth, growing up in the jazz world of Manhattan, his teenage years, and finally adulthood. It is about family and fate, loving and loss."
700 Sundays is produced by Janice Crystal, Larry Magid and Face Productions and features scenic design by David F. Weiner, lighting design by David Lee Cuthbert, projection design by Michael Clark and sound design by Steve Canyon Kennedy.
The show won the 2005 Tony Award for Special Theatrical Event and both the 2005 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Outstanding Solo Performance.
