Comedian Mike Birbiglia will kick off a four-city tour of his hit Broadway play THE NEW ONE at Washington, D.C.’s National Theatre from September 24-29, 2019. The D.C. premiere of MIKE BIRBIGLIA’S THE NEW ONE will also mark the start of the venue’s 2019-2020 Broadway at the National series, which is set to feature an unprecedented 16 productions.
Mike Birbiglia made you laugh in Sleepwalk With Me (it was a play presented by Nathan Lane, then a movie, THEN a book), My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, and “Thank God for Jokes.” (He was also really funny in that one season of “Orange is the New Black.” And in “Billions.” And “Broad City.”) Now he’s direct from Broadway, telling a new story in a new way with the same heart and humor we’ve come to expect. Lin-Manuel Miranda called THE NEW ONE “as perfect a night as you’re gonna get.” Do not miss THE NEW ONE. Some people say it’s his best one. (It was John Mulaney. Also Vogue.)
THE NEW ONE is recommended for ages 13 and up and runs approximately 1 hour, 20 minutes with no intermission.
