Chris Rock to Reunite With Bobby Cannavale, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Annabella Sciorra for Motherf**ker in L.A.
By Adam Hetrick
Chris Rock will join fellow original The Motherf**ker with the Hat Broadway cast members Bobby Cannavale, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Annabella Sciorra for the L.A. Theatre Works production of the Stephen Adly Guirgis play.
The Motherf**ker with the Hat will be presented Jan. 31-Feb. 2, 2013, at the James Bridges Theater. Cannavale, Rodriguez and Sciorra were previously announced to perform.
All LATW performances are recorded and broadcast on LATW's nationally syndicated radio theatre series, "The Play's the Thing."
Here's how the play was described on Broadway: "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."
Guirgis' plays include Jesus Hopped the A Train, Little Flower Of East Orange, In Arabia We'd All Be Kings, Our Lady Of 121st Street, Den Of Thieves and Dominica The Fat Ugly Ho.
The original production of The Motherf**ker with the Hat premiered on Broadway in 2011, where it ran for 112 regular performances. It earned Tony Award nominations for Best Play, and acting nominations for Cannavale and Rodriguez, and fellow original cast member Yul Vazquez.
