NEW YORK (AP) — Larry David will hand over his starring role on Broadway to an old "Seinfeld" pal — Jason Alexander.
Producers said Thursday that Alexander, who played George Costanza on the hit show, will replace David as Norman Drexel in "Fish in the Dark" beginning June 9. David wrote the comedy, which is running at the Cort Theatre.
Alexander is a Tony Award winner for "Jerome Robbins' Broadway" and was last on the Great White Way in 1990's "Accomplice." He was lured away from the stage by David's "Seinfeld."
"Fish in the Dark" is about the gathering of the Drexel family in present-day California as they prepare to bid farewell to their dying patriarch. Old rivalries and still-simmering angers are reignited, which echo through the next few days.
