Eight Nights Only! Kathy Griffin to Go to Broadway

She’s reinvented herself again–comedian, reality star, and author Kathy Griffin is to do a Broadway revue. Titled Kathy Griffin Wants a Tony, the show will run from March 11 to March 19 at the Belasco before previews start there for Neil LaBute’s Fat Pig. In a press release, Griffin said, “Every night will be fresh material [sic] due to the revolving door of pop culture, political and celebrity missteps. I won’t be able to hold back.” Those wondering just how early in her Broadway run she’d make a Spider-Man joke will either be disappointed or elated–she claims she considered understudying for the show in her press release.
