In the grand tradition of West Side Story and The Lion King comes the next great American musical... but until then, there's Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me, Martin Short's uproarious Broadway extravaganza, with huge and unnecessary set changes, stampeding livestock, unpatented pyrotechnics, and a live birth at select matinees. Filling the stage with unforgettable characters (along with a brilliant troupe of top Broadway performers and musicians, who upstage Mr. Short whenever he lets them), and co-written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (who don't need the money because they wrote Hairspray), Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me brings over 20 years of comic genius to the Broadway stage - and leaves it there. Scott Wittman directs.
The highly acclaimed original Broadway cast reunites for the final two weeks of performances when Nicole Parker returns December 26 through January 7.
