Broadway: Larry David’s “Fish in the Dark” Offering Deep Discounts for Jason Alexander’s Matinees



Right now, Larry David’s “Fish in the Dark” is officially sold out. While it won’t be winning any Tony Awards, the very funny comedy starring David and Rita Wilson is raking in millions at the Broadway box office. But now is offering $105 orchestra seats for matinees in June once Emmy winner Jason Alexander takes over playing Larry, er, Norman. Jason played a version of Larry in “Seinfeld” of course as George Costanza. I thought the show would be even hotter a ticket with Alexander. For some reason, though, the producers are discounting some of his performances. It looks like there are about 35 good seats at each of the offered performances. I’m going to buy a couple myself today.
