About the show

Jason Alexander stars in this limited run comedy about a death in the family, which brings playwright Larry David's acerbic wit and unfiltered observations to Broadway. More…

Jason Alexander takes over the role originated by Larry David, who returned to the stage for the first time since eighth grade, in a brand-new Broadway comedy written by...Larry David. Norman Drexel is a character who is very much like...Larry David. Expect his trademark humor and no-filter criticisms of life's annoyances.
