Henry Winkler and Cheyenne Jackson Coming to Broadway in the Porn Comedy, ‘The Performers’

This sounds like tons of fun.

Henry Winkler is coming to Broadway as a porn star. That sentence alone will get me in the seats.

Winkler will stars alongside Cheyenne Jackson in David West Read‘s comedy, The Performers. The play is scheduled to begin previews October 23rd with an opening night of November  14th at the Longacre Theater. The show will be directed by Evan Cabnet

The Performers is a romantic comedy about two high school friends (Jackson and Daniel Breaker) and their girlfriends who meetup at the Adult Film Awards in Las Vegas. When Chuck Wood (Winkler), the hardest-working man in the business, manages to get entangled in the romantic problems of two couples, things get out of hand.

When I talked to Winkler, OK Mr. Winkler, at Comic-Con a couple weeks ago, he said that he had some plans in the fall but that he couldn’t say what it was. His last time on Broadway was in 2000 in Neil Simon‘s The Dinner Party

Jackson’s Broadway credits include the revival of Finian’s Rainbow and Xanadu.
