All the way back in January, we first heard that Larry David was working on a play, possibly for Jerry Seinfeld to star in. Well, it appears the Seinfeld part was off, but the New York Times reports David has in fact written a play, and that he will star in it himself on Broadway. Entitled Fish in the Dark, it will open on March 5 at a Shubert Theater. David wouldn't share any details about the play itself, other than that the character he is playing is “somebody very similar to Larry David — it might even be Larry David with a different name.” David says he wasn't planning on starring but was convinced by the show's megaproducer, Scott Rudin. Save his work pretending to be in The Producers on Curb Your Enthusiasm, David admits he hasn't acted onstage since the eighth grade. He was once a working stand-up, so that might help. But he was known for hating the audience and often just walking offstage mid-set, so maybe it won't. Either way, this all sounds pretty, pretty, pretty grand (it's theater, gotta class it up a little).
