Nick Kroll & John Mulaney bringing Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland to ‘Oh, Hello on Broadway’
You may remember that Nick Kroll and John Mulaney brought their 'Oh, Hello' alter egos, Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland, to the NYC's Cherry Lane Theatre for a sold-out off-Broadway run last fall. Gil and George have hit the big time now, announcing that 'Oh, Hello on Broadway' is coming to the Lyceum Theatre for a limited run from September 23, 2016 - January 8, 2017. Tickets are on sale now.
Kroll and Mulaney talked to The New York Times about what to expect:
“To the annoyance of George and Gil, they’ve learned their lines and they don’t want to learn new lines,” Mr. Kroll said.
Mr. Mulaney said: “They locked the show in 1989. We’re begging them to update the references.”
Mr. Kroll added: “Their main request is showgirls. And we haven’t quite figured out how to tell them that the union has made it clear that they will not provide any showgirls for a George and Gil production.”
