Billy Crystal‘s Broadway hit 700 Sundays will be taped before a live audience January 3 and 4 at the Imperial Theatre In New York and will debut on HBO later in 2014. An autobiographical journey, 700 Sundays is an original two-act play in which Crystal plays numerous characters who have influenced who he is today, dealing with his youth, growing up in the jazz world of Manhattan, his teenage years and, finally, adulthood. 700 Sundays broke the house record for highest weekly gross at the Broadhurst Theatre in its opening week, and continued to top its own record in subsequent weeks. It won the 2005 Tony Award for Special Theatrical Event, as well as 2005 Drama Desk and the Outer Critics Circle awards. 700 Sundays will be Crystal’s sixth HBO solo special, following On Location, A Comics Line, Don’t Get Me Started, The Lost Minutes and Midnight Train To Moscow. 700 Sundays will be executive produced by Billy Crystal, Janice Crystal, Larry Magid and David Steinberg; directed by Des McAnuff.
