Jay Johnson: The Two and Only to Arrive on Broadway in September
The show was first scheduled to open on Broadway in March, but postponed its engagement to allow for the extension of Bridge & Tunnel. The show recently played the Colony Theatre in Burbank, California, and will have a four-week run at Boston's American Repertory Theatre, July 12-August 6. Its creative team will include Beowulf Borrit (sets), Clifton Taylor (lighting), David Gotwald (sound), and Michael Andreas (original music).
Johnson, who is best known for playing the schizophrenic role of Chuck and Bob on the classic television comedy Soap, has a 30-year career as a ventriloquist. In The Two and Only, he gives voice to characters ranging from a subversive monkey to a withering tennis ball.
