Packed with a star-studded cast and a classic tale that has delighted – and saddened – audiences for decades, this show is destined to be a shining star on the Broadway schedule this season.
Ben Stiller is currently appearing in the play for the second time around as Artie Shaughnessy, after portraying Artie’s son in a 1986 production on Broadway. His mother, Anne Meara, also appeared in a former production of this show, as the schizophrenic wife Bananas. In this production, Edie Falco adeptly takes on the role of Bananas, with Jennifer Jason Leigh playing the part of Artie’s girlfriend Bunny.
The Story behind Discount “House of Blue Leaves” Tickets
“House of Blue Leaves” tells the story of Shaughnessy, a zookeeper and aspiring songwriter that dreams of making it big in Hollywood. His mentally ill wife Bananas is a virtual shut-in, who Artie often believes is dragging him down into the pit with her.
Artie recently met a neighbor in the building, Bunny Flingus, at a steam bath and has been carrying on a relationship with her ever since. Bunny is the one person who believes Artie has what it takes to succeed as a songwriter, and she encourages him to leave Bananas and move to Hollywood with her to find his dream.
