Lewis Black heads to Broadway

Comic set for brief standup stint at Rodgers Theater

Lewis Black is headed for a Broadway stint for his standup act, with “Running on Empty: Lewis Black on Broadway” skedding a brief run at the Richard Rodgers Theater this fall.

Nederlander Org, landlord of the Rodgers, has slotted in the show’s weeklong stint just after the closing of “Porgy and Bess,” due shuttering at the theater Sept. 23. Black has previously played Gotham venues including Carnegie Hall, City Center and the Brooks Atkinson Theater, where HBO special “Lewis Black: Black on Broadway” was filmed.

“Running on Empty” will center on the comedian’s cranky take on contempo politics, with all sides in the crossfire. Show is presented on the Rialto by James L. Nederlaner and Eva Price (“Peter and the Starcatchers”).

“Empty” runs Oct. 9-14.
