Due to popular demand, the forthcoming Broadway debut of comedian and actor Dave Chappelle has extended its stay at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre by one week. Dave Chappelle – Live On Broadway will now run from July 9 through July 20, 2019. Tickets for the additional week will go on sale starting Friday, June 28 at 10 AM ET.
“Chappelle, a Mark Twain Prize recipient, whose award-winning comedy is trademarked by his sharp and irreverent social commentary, explores race, popular culture, sex, drugs, politics, and fame. In 2017, he released four highly anticipated specials on Netflix: “The Art of Spin,” “Deep in the Heart of Texas,” “Equanimity and The Bird Revelations.” All four specials were delivered on vinyl as double-feature albums and received Grammy Awards for Best Comedy Album in 2018 and 2019. Pollstar awarded Chappelle with Comedy Tour of The Year in 2014 and 2018 and he captured his second Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special with Equanimity in 2018.”
Producers have announced that the Dave Chappelle – Live On Broadway event will remain a carefully guarded performance. No recording devices will be allowed in the theatre, and anyone with a cell phone will be required to keep it in a locked pouch for the duration of the show. Additionally, anyone caught with a cell phone inside the venue will be immediately removed. All material performed is copyright protected by Pilot Boy Productions, Inc./Dave Chappelle and may not be reproduced in any form.
Chappelle’s shows around the country have traditionally sold out quickly, and the same is anticipated for his Broadway run.
