Woody Allen, Ethan Coen, and Elaine May will all be coming to Broadway this fall — together, says The New York Times. In an interview today, Allen told the paper that the trio were teaming for a night of three one acts — each written by one of them — called Relatively Speaking. (May and Allen’s similar collaboration with David Mamet, Death Defying Acts starring Linda Lavin and Paul Guilfoyle, opened off-Broadway in March of 1995 and ran for a year.)
Allen told the Times over the phone that his contribution, titled Honeymoon Hotel, features about a half dozen characters and is “a broad comedy, for laughs, no redeeming social value.” May’s work, George is Dead, and Coen’s play, Talking Cure, are also laughers. Previews are scheduled to begin in September, with an official opening planned for October.
