Billy Crystal Celebrates His Return to Broadway Tonight at the Opening of 700 Sundays

The Tony Award-winning one-man show officially opens its Broadway remount tonight.

By New York City

The revival of actor/comedian Billy Crystal's Tony Award-winning autobiographical one-man show 700 Sundays opens tonight at the Imperial Theatre.

Des McAnuff directs the show, which is scheduled for a limited run through January 5, 2014. The two-act play, written by Crystal (with additional content by Alan Zweibel), explores Crystal's youth and experiences growing up on Long Island and within Manhattan's jazz world, in which his father, Jack, worked in multiple capacities. The title refers to the amount of time Billy and Jack had together; Jack died when Billy was 15 years old, shortly after an unresolved argument between the two.

Crystal first brought the show to Broadway in 2005 with a run at the Broadhurst Theatre, where it won the 2005 Tony Award for Special Theatrical Experience and the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Outstanding Solo Performance.
