Follow his harrowing journey from first sip to first kiss, from critical choice to critical care, and all the way down to the deepest depths of rock bottom, where he finds the strength to forge his own path toward sobriety. The White Chip is a play that’s darkly funny, surprisingly shocking, and above all, earnest. Get tickets to The White Chip off Broadway now.

Joe Tapper, last seen on Broadway in You Can't Take It With You, reprises his leading role as Steven from the 2019 production. Director Sheryl Kaller is also no stranger to Broadway, having directed two Broadway productions – Mothers and Sons and Next Fall, for which she earned a Tony nomination.
Playwright Sean Daniels based the main character on his own struggles with alcoholism. Steven, amid his flourishing career, frequently gets day drunk on vodka that he mixes into bottles of soda. He still succeeds at his job at first, but Steven’s life soon deteriorates. When his father is diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, Steven uses the shock as a further excuse to drink and distance himself from his parents. The play explores how a man far gone can still find a way out against all odds.
Laugh your way through the unexpected twists of life with this gripping cocktail of comedy and raw truth. The return of the New York Times Critic's Pick stars Joe Tapper as a director on a rollercoaster journey from success to the rock bottom of addiction and out the other end.
The White Chip is at the The Susan & Ronald Frankel Theater at the The Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space, which is located in New York, NY, USA, 10019.
The White Chip tickets start at $47.
