MR. SATURDAY NIGHT is the story of Buddy Young, Jr., an outrageous and outspoken comedian who found fame in the early days of television! Now, some 40 years after he hit the top, Buddy will take one last shot at finding fame, fixing his family, and forcing his way into the spotlight – one hilarious step at a time. MR. SATURDAY NIGHT is the brand new musical comedy about being a funny man, a family man, and getting a second chance at both.
Written by BILLY CRYSTAL, LOWELL GANZ & BABALOO MANDEL, based on an original concept by Billy Crystal, MR.

Like the movie, the Mr. Saturday Night musical centers around the comedian Buddy Young Jr., who reflects on his career in a series of flashbacks. He got his big break on his own Saturday night TV show and couldn’t have done it without his brother, Stan, who also acted as Buddy’s manager. While Buddy was enjoying the peak of his fame, he went against his brother’s advice and did an offensive bit on The Ed Sullivan Show, costing him his career. He soon estranged Stan and even his own wife and daughter out of self-loathing.
But when a fresh young agent discovers Buddy, now 73, and lands him a film role, Buddy gets one more chance to prove to himself he can succeed and fix his career and his relationships. That is, if his ego and self-destructive impulses don’t get in the way again.
Billy Crystal made his directorial debut with the Mr. Saturday Night movie, but he’s now handed off the directorial reins to John Rando. Three-time Tony-winning composer Jason Robert Brown and lyricist Amanda Green provide new music and lyrics to go with the original screenwriters’ adaptation of their film script, and Ellenore Scott choreographs.
Have a great night at the theatre any day of the week with Mr. Saturday Night. Check back for information on tickets to Mr. Saturday Night in New York on TodayTix.
