Chris Rock Returns To The Motherf**ker With The Hat In LA

The complete original cast of The Motherf**ker With The Hat will reunite to do a short run of the show for the L.A. Theatre Works presentation. Playing at the James Bridges Theatre from Jan 31st until Feb 2nd, the show will be recorded and air on LATW’s nationally syndicated radio theatre series entitled “The Play’s the Thing.”

Don’t know what to expect? Well, the story, in short, is a memorable one, to say the least

“Jackie and Veronica have been in love since the 8th grade. But now, Jackie is on parole and living clean and sober under the guidance of his sponsor, Ralph D, while still living and loving with his volatile soul mate Veronica who is fiercely loving, but far from sober. Still, their love is pure. And true. Nothing can come between them — except a hat.”

The original cast also includes Bobby Cannavale, Annabella Sciorra, Yul Vázquez and Elizabeth Rodriguez. The original production of The Motherf**ker with the Hat premiered on Broadway in 2011. It earned nominations for Best Play, and acting nominations for Cannavale, Rodriguez, and Vazquez at the 2011 Tony Awards.
