Comedian and actor Dave Chappelle, who will make his Broadway debut next month at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, has extended the limited engagement.
Dave Chappelle Live on Broadway, originally scheduled for July 9–13, will now continue an additional week through July 20. The engagement is produced by Live Nation, The Araca Group, and EBG (Entertainment Benefits Group).
In 2017, Chappelle released four specials on Netflix: The Art of Spin, Deep in the Heart of Texas, Equanimity, and The Bird Revelations. All four were released as double-feature albums and received Grammy Awards for Best Comedy Album in 2018 and 2019. He captured his second Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special with Equanimity in 2018.
Tickets for the extension week will go on sale to the general public starting June 28 at 10 AM ET through TicketMaster.com.
The Lunt-Fontanne is currently the home of the In Residence on Broadway series, a collaboration between Live Nation, The Araca Group, and Entertainment Benefits Group. The series continues with Regina Spektor through June 26 and illusionist Criss Angel July 2–7. Barry Manilow will play the Broadway venue July 26–August 17.
