Chris Rock to make Broadway debut this spring
Chris Rock will make his Broadway debut in Stephen Adly Guirgis’ play The Motherf**ker with the Hat next spring, alongside Bobby Cannavale, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Annabella Sciorra, and Yul Vázquez. Performances of the 14-week engagement begin March 22, 2011, with an opening set for April 11 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. According to a release from the production, Motherf–r is a “high-octane, verbal cage match about love, fidelity, and misplaced haberdashery.” The story centers on a love story between Cannavale’s Jackie and Rodriguez’s Veronica, who have been in love since eighth grade. Out on parole and living sober, Jackie is getting help from his sponsor Ralph D, who Rock will portray.
