December 6, 2004: Successful comedians, especially those who have sharpened their teeth in the cruel world of stand-up, are usually not people you would want to have over for a cozy evening with the family - at least not without a home insurance agent and psychotherapist on call. Imagine getting through an intimate night with, say, Jim Carrey or Richard Pryor without broken crockery, mangled feelings or at the very least the kind of exhaustion that could keep you in bed for a week.READ THE REVIEW

Billy Crystal makes his Broadway debut in 700 Sundays, performed and written by Crystal, and directed by two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff. This autobiographical journey is an original two-act play in which Billy plays numerous characters that have influenced who he is today. It deals with his youth, growing up in the jazz world of Manhattan, his teenage years, and finally adulthood. It is about family, and fate. It is hilarious, personal, and touching as he takes us through moments of love, laughter and loss.
