Comedian Lewis Black will be making his return to Broadway this fall for a limited engagement run of Lewis Black: Black to the Future. There will only be four performances of the show and they will take place at Marquis Theatre, September 12, 19, 26, and October 10.
Back in 2012, Black made his Broadway debut in Running on Empty. Black is no stranger to the theatre having been a playwright before taking on comedy full-time. He earned an MFA degree at the Yale School of Drama in 1977. He served as the playwright-in-residence and associate artistic director of Steve Olsen’s West Bank Cafe Downstairs Theatre Bar in Hell’s Kitchen in New York City, where he collaborated with composer and lyricist Rusty Magee and artistic director Rand Foerster on hundreds of one-act plays from 1981 to 1989. Black would open up these show with stand-up comedy as the master of ceremonies and the rest is history.
Black has released 11 albums to date, 9 DVD, and has been featured all across television and film throughout his career including the recent role as Anger in Disney’s smash hit Inside Out.
