Oh, Hello on Broadway Tickets
After a successful national tour, the comedy Oh, Hello will make its debut on Broadway. Oh, Hello on Broadway will star comedians Nick Kroll as Gil Faizon and John Mulaney as George St. Geegland at the Lyceum Theatre.
Kroll, who starred in Kroll Show and The League, and Mulaney, who is known for his work as a writer on Saturday Night Live and his Netflix comedy special, play the roles of two grumpy New Yorkers in their 70s. The play loosely tells the story of a crisis that unfolds when Gil and George lose their apartment’s rent-controlled status.
The Move to Broadway
Kroll and Mulaney have been playing the roles of Gil and George in live performances for a decade. They began playing the characters when they co-hosted a comedy showcase at the club Rififi and also portrayed them on the Comedy Central series “Kroll Show.” They only began thinking about bringing the characters to Broadway in the past couple of years, and it did not seem like a plausible idea at first.
They gradually made the move to Broadway with appearances at the 92nd Street Y and Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and performed for sold-out audiences at the off-Broadway Cherry Lane Theater. The show then began a national tour. During that time, they continued to work on the play and looked for ways to make the characters and dialogue better.
Alex Timbers was a creative consultant for the Off-Broadway performance and will direct the Broadway production. He is also directing a performance of the Disney musical Frozen on Broadway.
Oh, Hello on Broadway will still have one scene that delighted audiences on tour. In the “Too Much Tuna” segment, celebrities and audience members are brought up on stage and fed large amounts of tuna fish.
