Tituss Burgess and Jane Krakowski Will Star in CENTER OF THE YOUNIVERSE Off-Broadway
It’s the friendship that keeps on giving. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Schmigadoon!, and 30 Rock co-stars Tituss Burgess and Jane Krakowski will perform live together in a new show, Center of the YOUniverse. The Audible production will have a limited three-night-only Off-Broadway run, June 15-17, at the Minetta Lane Theatre.
Center of the YOUniverse is a musical spectacular that asks: what if a six-time Emmy nominee and a Tony winner could save humanity from itself by providing the best possible entertainment? With their star wattage at an all-time high, Burgess and Krakowski have braved an impossible double-booking in a blend of song and storytelling in which they’ll stop at nothing to upstage each other and steal the spotlight—all in the name of healing the world.
Tony-winning choreographer Christopher Gattelli (Newsies, The King and I), who has previously worked with the duo on Schmigadoon!, will direct. Technical supervision for the production is by Hudson Theatrical Associates, with general management by Baseline Theatrical’s Andy Jones and Jonathan Whitton. Center of the YOUniverse will also be recorded live from the Minetta Lane Theatre and released on Audible at a later date.
Tickets for the show will be available exclusively to Audible members beginning April 11 and will go on sale to the public, beginning April 13 at noon ET. For more information, click here.
Prior to their Off-Broadway show, the stars will be seen in Season 2 of Schmigadoon!, coming to Apple TV+ on April 5. Set in the new world of Schmicago, the latest adventure is a tribute to the musicals of the ’60s and ’70s. Krakowski plays a send-up of the lawyer Billy Flynn from Chicago, while Burgess is the Narrator in a role similar to the Leading Player in Pippin. Other references include Sweeney Todd, Cabaret, and Hair. Check out the trailer here.
