Mr. Saturday Night

Mr. Saturday Night

A musical adaptation of Billy Crystal's film of the same name about one comedian’s meteoric rise to the middle.


The story of Buddy Young Jr., an outrageous and outspoken comedian who found fame, if not fortune, in the early days of television. Now, some 40 years after his TV career flamed out, Buddy seeks one more shot at the spotlight, and while he’s at it, one last shot at fixing the family he fractured along the way.

Based on the Castle Rock Entertainment motion picture "Mr. Saturday Night", written by Billy Crystal, Lowell Ganz & Babaloo Mandel. By special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures.
