Debra Messing To Star In Broadway Premiere Of 'Birthday Candles'

The Paley Honors: A Gala Tribute To LGBTQ+

Debra Messing is set to star in the Broadway premiere of Birthday Candles marking the Broadway debut of playwright Noah Haidle.

Messing was last seen on Broadway in John Patrick Shanley's play Outside Mullingar opposite Brían F. O'Byrne

Birthday Candles will begin preview performances on Thursday, April 2 and open officially on Tuesday, April 21, 2020. This is a limited engagement through Sunday, June 21, 2020 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).

Debra Messing (Will & Grace) returns to the stage as "Ernestine Ashworth," who spends her 17th birthday agonizing over her insignificance in the universe. Soon enough, it’s her 18th birthday. Even sooner, her 41st. Her 70th. Her 101st. Five generations, dozens of goldfish, an infinity of dreams, one cake baked over a century. What makes a lifetime…into a life?

The production will be presented by Roundabout Theatre Company, for more details click here.
