About This Show

Billy Crystal returns to Broadway in his very first musical comedy!

Mr. Saturday Night is the story of Buddy Young Jr., an outrageous and outspoken comedian who found fame, if not fortune, in the early days of television. Now, some 40 years after his TV career flamed out, Buddy seeks one more shot at the spotlight, and while he’s at it, one last shot at fixing the family he fractured along the way.

Written by Billy Crystal, Lowell Ganz, and Babaloo Mandel, based on an original concept by Billy Crystal, Mr. Saturday Night features music by three-time Tony winner Jason Robert Brown, lyrics by Tony Award nominee Amanda Green, choreography by Ellenore Scott (Funny Girl), and direction by Tony Award winner John Rando. This brand-new musical comedy about one comedian’s meteoric rise to the middle arrives on Broadway this spring.
