The critically acclaimed Broadway revival of THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES, starring Ben Stiller, Edie Falco and Jennifer Jason Leigh, directed by David Cromer will conclude its Broadway run on Saturday, June 25th after 21 previews and 72 regular performances. The production opened at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48th Street) on Monday, April 25, 2011.

In addition to Ben Stiller as Artie Shaughnessy, Edie Falco as Bananas Shaughnessy and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Bunny Flingus, the cast includes Thomas Sadoski as Billy Einhorn, Alison Pillas Corrinna Stroller, Mary Beth Hurt as Head Nun, Christopher Abbott as Ronnie Shaughnessy, Halley Feiffer as Little Nun, Susan Bennett as Second Nun, Jimmy Davis as Military Policeman and Tally Sessions as White Man.

In THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES, Ben Stiller is Artie Shaughnessy, a zookeeper and wannabe songwriter, who is trying to cope with a schizophrenic wife (Falco), an impatient girlfriend (Leigh) and a visit from the Pope, all while sustaining his dream of hitting it big. THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES is a satirical take on celebrity, religion, and the frequent merging of the two.

The production team includes Scott Pask (Scenic Design), Jane Greenwood (Costume Design), Brian MacDevitt (Lighting Design), Fitz Patton (Sound Design) and Tom Watson (Hair Design).

THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES debuted on Broadway in Lincoln Center Theater’s Tony-winning 1986 production directed by Jerry Zaks, featuring Ben Stiller in his Broadway and professional debut as Ronnie Shaughnessy. The play was first staged in 1966 by the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center and opened off-Broadway on February 10, 1971 at the Truck and Warehouse Theatre, winning the New York Drama Critics’ Circle & Obie Awards for Best American Play. Ben Stiller’s mother Anne Meara played Bunny Flingus in that original production.
