Broadway Stars Ask Mike Birbiglia About The New One and How Not to Pronounce His Name

Sutton Foster, John Mulaney, and more joined Birbiglia in celebrating his Broadway debut at the Cort Theatre.

Mike Birbiglia's The New One opened last night at the Cort Theatre, where the solo show has set up shop for a nine-week Broadway engagement. Comedy and Broadway stars alike joined Birbiglia for the red-carpet occasion and shared a few of their burning questions, which we happily relayed to the man of the hour after the curtain came down. The main thing we learned about the transition from stand-up to Broadway: Your enemy shifts from hecklers to cellphones.
