When Playwrights Kill


"Triumphant!" - American Songwriter Magazine

Tony Award® nominee JEREMY JORDAN (Newsies) and Tony Award winners ANDRE DE SHIELDS (Hadestown) and HARRIET HARRIS (Thoroughly Modern Millie) are set to star in the world premiere of the new backstage comedy WHEN PLAYWRIGHTS KILL, written by MATTHEW LOMBARDO (Looped, High, Who's Holiday) and directed by NOAH HIMMELSTEIN (The Lucky Star).  


This play is hilarious! It tells the story of Jack Hawkins (Jordan), an aspiring playwright who is on the verge of making his Broadway debut. But after being forced to hire the notoriously difficult actress Brooke Remington (Harris), his play's out-of-town tryout in Boston proves disastrous. Unwilling to bring the production to New York and unable to convince the producer to fire her, Jack knows there is only one solution that will save his play and career ... Brooke Remington must be stopped! 

Jason Turchin is co-producer on When Playwrights Kill. For more information, please email
