Jenni Barber, Daniel Breaker, Ari Graynor, Cheyenne Jackson, and Henry Winkler will star in the world premiere of David West Read’s comedy The Performers, to play Broadway’s Longacre Theatre beginning October 23, with an opening set for November 14. Evan Cabnet will direct.
This romantic comedy is about two high school friends (Jackson and Breaker) — and the women in their lives (Ari Graynor and an actress to be announced) — who reconnect at the Adult Film Awards in Las Vegas. When the night takes an unexpected turn and relationships are threatened, Chuck Wood (Winkler), the hardest-working man in the business, steps in to lend a hand.
The production will have set design by Anna Louizos, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, costume design by Jessica Wegener Shay and sound design by Nevin Steinberg.
