Get ready to laugh until your sides hurt - former Saturday Night Live cast member Alex Moffat is set to take the stage and make his long-awaited Broadway debut in the upcoming comedy, The Cottage, helmed by the one and only Jason Alexander. Joining Moffat alongside previously announced Eric McCormack, Laura Bell Bundy, and Lilli Cooper, will be Nehal Joshi and Dana Steingold. Here's a look.
Sandy Rustin’s script for The Cottage is sure to be a hit with its rollicking tale of sex, betrayal, and love when it starts its limited run at the Hayes Theater from July 7th through October 29th. Its official opening night is set for July 24th.
Moffat's time on SNL (2016-2022) made him popularly known for his spot-on impersonations of important figures such as Joe Biden, Eric Trump, Mark Zuckerberg, Anderson Cooper, and Joe Scarborough. He also had a recurring Weekend Update character – Guy Who Just Bought a Boat! His film works include Susie Searches and Christmas with the Campbells as well as providing vocal duties as Jimmy in Disney's sequel Wreck-It Ralph 2. You can also catch him currently on Apple's Bad Monkey series alongside Vince Vaughn.
Nehal Joshi has plenty of Broadway experience too – he has been part of casts such as All My Sons, Phantom of the Opera (closing cast), Flying Over Sunset, School of Rock, Gettin' The Band Back Together, Les Miserables, (Original Revival Cast), and Threepenny Opera. His Off-Broadway credits include Cyrano Working (2008 revision), Grand Hotel (Encores!), and Three Sisters. Dana Steingold has made quite an impact on theatre too by originating the role of Girl Scout for Beetlejuice before taking over Lydia Deetz later. 25th Annual Putnam County, Spelling Bee, Avenue Q, The Visit, and Anyone Can Whistle are some stage roles she's known for while her TV credits appear on Netflix’s Inventing Anna as well as Saraline Timbers on Nickelodeon’s Welcome to the Wayne. Don't miss out this opportunity to witness Alex Moffat light up Broadway like never before with Joshi and Steingold in The Cottage. Be sure to stay tuned as we find out more!
