Good Night, and Good Luck, a new play by George Clooney and Grant Heslov, and directed by Tony Award winner David Cromer, will premiere on Broadway in Spring 2025 at a Shubert theater to be announced. Based on the 2005 film of the same name and written by the same authors, the production will star Mr. Clooney, in his Broadway debut, as Edward R. Murrow.

In a statement, Mr. Cromer said, “Edward R. Murrow operated from a kind of moral clarity that feels vanishingly rare in today’s media landscape. There was an immediacy in those early live television broadcasts that today can only be effectively captured on stage, in front of a live audience.”

Mr. Clooney added, “I am honored, after all these years, to be coming back to the stage and especially, to Broadway, the art form and the venue that every actor aspires to.”
