John Mulaney Will Say Oh, Hello to Neil LaBute's Fat Pig
Mulaney will join ''This Is Us'' star Chrissy Metz in a reading of LaBute's dark comedy.
John Mulaney (Oh, Hello), Mike Coulter (Luke Cage), and Ari Graynor (Yen) will join This Is Us Golden Globe nominee Chrissy Metz in MCC Theater's upcoming benefit reading of Neil LaBute's Fat Pig, to be held on March 5 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Andrew McCarthy, who starred in MCC's original production of the dark comedy, will direct.
MCC previously presented the world premiere production of Fat Pig during the 2004-05 season. This reading, celebrating the organization's 30th-anniversary season, will feature a new, never-before-seen ending that LaBute has written.
The play is described as follows: "Cow. Slob. Pig. How many insults can you hear before you stand up and defend the woman you love? Tom faces just that question when he falls for Helen, a bright, funny, sexy young woman who also happens to be plus-sized."
