Neil LaBute's 'Fat Pig' postponed a year

Posted on

Neil LaBute’s Fat Pig, which was planned to open at Broadway’s Belasco Theatre this spring, has been postponed until next season, due to lack of financing. In a statement, producers Aldo Scrofani and Heather Provost said: “It’s our dream to keep this terrific cast and stunning creative team intact as we work to reschedule Fat Pig for next season. The current financial situation did not leave adequate time to maintain the integrity of the show and its marketing campaign. This play deserves to be seen on Broadway and we remain very much committed to that goal.”

LaBute was onboard to direct Dane Cook, Josh Hamilton, Julia Stiles and Heather Jane Rolff.
