Mr Saturday Night on Broadway Background

Mr Saturday Night is Billy Crystal’s pet project musical, in which he co-wrote and stars in the lead. With a score by Jason Robert Brown and Amanda Green, and with the Nederlander Organization producing, the show opens on Broadway in the Nederlander Theatre in late 2020. The Broadway show follows the box office failure of the 1992 movie of the same name, that was Crystal's movie directorial debut, that had a poor critical and box office reception.

What’s Mr Saturday Night Like?

In 1956, the career of stand-up comedian Buddy Young Jr. skyrockets after he hits the big time with his own Saturday night television show on NBC and becomes America's favorite funnyman. As Buddy's success fame, so does his ego. In a true classic Greek tragedy format, Buddy goes just too far with the show and uses offensive material, which ends up costing him the show and his career. Instead of blaming himself, he blames everyone around him, most notably his brother Stan, who helped get him to the top in the first place. We fats forward to his later years, Buddy is still estranged from his family and at the slim chance of redemption, Buddy still comes through and attempts to destroy the redemption through his own self-destructive nature.
