Comedian Chris Rock will soon be in a Broadway play, wow!  The funnyman will star in the Stephen Adly Guirgis’  play entitled The Motherfucker With the Hat, and yes, that is it’s real title, lol.  The show opens April 11, 2011 at the Schoenfeld Theatre in NYC.

The play is about a couple – Jackie (Cannavale) and Veronica (Rodriguez) – who’ve been in love with each other since they were kids, but after years of drugs and alcohol addiction, Jackie has sobered up with the help of his AA sponsor, Ralph D. (played by Chris Rock); however, Veronica, hasn’t.

Chris Rock reportedly was impressive during readings of the play over the summer, and some say his performance (not a comedic one – more of a dramatic one) will surprise audience, and the play is expected to draw Fences numbers (the recent commercially and critically acclaimed revival of August Wilson play that starred Denzel Washington and Viola Davis).

Well, to me, this sounds like a whole lot of fun!  If I make it to New york by then, I might have to check this one out.
