Chris Rock, who made his Broadway debut in Stephen Adly GuirgisThe Motherf***er with the Hat, will reunite with his previously announced former castmates Bobby Cannavale and Elizabeth Rodriguez for L.A. Theatre Works recording of the play. There will be six performances recorded in front of a live audience at UCLA’s James Bridges Theater, January 31-February 2.

In the play’s 2011 premiere, Rock played Ralph D, the Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor to Cannavale’s Jackie. Rodriguez was Jackie’s girlfriend Veronica, who ended up having some unexpected connections to Ralph D.

The finalized recording of the show will later be broadcast via L.A. Theatre Works’ nationally syndicated radio theater series, distributed on CD, and made available digital download.
