The audience waits with a blank stage, exposing the brick of the theater walls and framing the playing space with an array of theatrical lighting that will shift seamlessly between each new beat of the story (lighting design by Aaron Copp). Mike Birbiglia, an actor, comedian, and storyteller, who has performed several live shows (a few of which were made into movies or Netflix specials), animates the full space in The New One, playing at the Cort Theatre on Broadway.Birbiglia is an expert...

Mike Birbiglia's "The New One" comes to Broadway!
Mike Birbiglia has a new one. It’s called "The New One." He’s 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 on 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.)
