Two of the most original voices in comedy today, Nick Kroll (Comedy Central's Kroll Show) and John Mulaney (Netflix's The Comeback Kid), make their brilliant and bizarre Broadway debuts in Oh, Hello on Broadway! They take the stage as their acclaimed alter egos, Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland - outrageously opinionated, 70-something, self-proclaimed "legendary" bachelors of New York's Upper West Side. No one who sees it will be the same, nor will they be that different. Directed by subversive visionary Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Oh, Hello on Broadway is Gil and George's pull-no-punches "memoir for the stage" - a laugh-a-minute two-man tour-de-force that's part scripted, part spontaneous comedy and totally unprecedented. Make no mistake, this is A VERY IMPORTANT PLAY. 15 Week Limited Engagement Run -September 23, 2016 - January 8, 2017 “Stupendously entertaining! Give it up for Nick Kroll & John Mulaney! They are an army of only two, yet they seem destined to conquer and slay anyone who ventures into the Lyceum Theatre. And, oh, the pleasure of their company.” Ben Brantley – The New York Times “A New York must!” - Time Out New York “Our long national downer is over! Oh, hello is infectiously energetic and packed with winning zingers.” - New York Post [Critics' Pick] "Hilarious! The audience gets blind drunk on their own laughter!" - Ben Brantley, The New York Times "Hamilton has a rival for the hottest ticket of the season!" - Jesse David Fox, New York Magazine
