Mr. Saturday Night, the 2022 Tony-nominated musical starring Billy Crystal, will land on the theatrical streaming service BroadwayHD on December 1. The production, which played its final performance on September 4, was filmed during its Broadway run at the Nederlander Theatre.

Based on the eponymous 1992 film (which also starred Billy Crystal), Mr. Saturday Night is about Buddy Young Jr., a Borscht Belt comedian relegated to playing nursing homes. But when the rumors of his death prove to be greatly exaggerated, he receives a chance to defibrillate his career.

Mr. Saturday Night features music by Jason Robert Brown, lyrics by Amanda Green, and a book by original screen writers Crystal, Lowell Ganz, and Babaloo Mandel. John Rando directs, Ellenore Scott choreographs, and David O. serves as musical director.

In addition to Crystal, who was nominated for a Tony for his performance, Mr. Saturday Night features Randy Graff as Elaine Young, David Paymer as Buddy's brother Stan Yankleman, Tony nominee Shoshana Bean as Susan Young, and Chasten Harmon as agent Annie Wells. The Broadway company also includes Jordan Gelber, Brian Gonzales, and Mylinda Hull.
