Comedian Lewis Black Will Bring Running On Empty to Broadway This Fall
26 Jul 2012
Running On Empty, the latest politically charged show by comedian Lewis Black, will play a week-long Broadway engagement at the Richard Rodgers Theatre this October, according to the New York Times.
The Oct. 9-14 engagement is a stop on Black's current U.S. tour of Running On Empty. Black's one-man show will follow the Tony-winning revival of The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess into the Rodgers. That production ends its run Sept. 22.
Tickets for the Broadway run of Running On Empty will go on sale Aug. 6.
Black, a stand-up comedian, actor and author, is one of the most prolific and popular performers working today. A graduate from the Yale School of Drama, an accomplished playwright, a familiar presence on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” and a Grammy Award-winning artist, Black performs over 200 nights a year to sell-out audiences around the world. He is one of few performers to sell out multiple, renowned theatres including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. His HBO specials include "Black On Broadway" and the Emmy-nominated "Red, White and Screwed."
