Sandra Bernhard, standup comedy’s edgy outsider and bad girl, is bringing her act to Broadway this fall. “I’m Still Here … Damn It!” is a one-woman show, replete with an onstage band, that involves singing, musical satire and Bernhard’s trademark pop culture harangues.
A new version of her recent Off Broadway show, “Still Here” is scheduled to open at the Shubert-owned Booth Theater in late October, according to a source familiar with the production.
The big three
The solo show is being produced by Delsener/Slater Enterprises, Robin Tate’s Contemporary Prods. and Arielle Tepper. Tepper cut her Broadway teeth on this season’s Tony-nominated John Leguizamo starrer “Freak.” She is represented by Shelly Schultz at the William Morris Agency and by Scott Noe at Noe-Man Management.
“Still Here” features new Bernhard material, the source said, but is loosely based on her downtown standup stint last year at the Westbeth Theater.
The limited run of the show will begin after “An Evening With Jerry Herman” shutters at the Booth on Sept. 27.
Tate is busy readying Jerry Seinfeld’s one man show, “Jerry Seinfeld: I’m Telling You for the Last Time,” which bows Aug. 6 at the Broadhurst Theater. The weeklong Seinfeld engagement will culminate in an HBO special on Aug. 9.
