I’m Not a Comedian…I’m Lenny Bruce Will Play an 8-Week Engagement at The Box – Playbill.com

I’m Not a Comedian…I’m Lenny Bruce, which chronicles the comedy, alleged obscenity, and untimely death of the comic legend, will play an eight-week run at The Box beginning March 8. Written by and starring Ronnie Marmo, the solo play premiered at the Cutting Room November 4, 2018 and ended its extended run January 25.

In the solo play, Marmo chronicles the life, death, and legacy of the controversial comedian. Accused of obscenity in his acts, Bruce fought for freedom of speech all the way to the Supreme Court. He accidentally died of an overdose in 1966 while out on appeal.

Tony Award winner Joe Mantegna directs. Performances take place Thursdays through Saturdays. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Lenny Bruce Memorial Foundation.
