Obie Award recipient and Drama Desk Award winner Anne Kauffman (Mary Jane, The Lucky Ones) is set to direct the world premiere of the musical adaptation of Sarah Silverman's best-selling memoir, The Bedwetter, at Atlantic Theater Company.
Scheduled for spring 2020, the new musical features a book by Admissions playwright Joshua Harmon and Silverman, lyrics by Adam Schlesinger and Silverman, and music by Schlesinger.
Performances will begin April 25 for a limited run through June 14 in the Linda Gross Theater (previously announced dates were May 9–June 28). Casting and a full creative team will be announced.
The world premiere of The Bedwetter, which details Silverman's upbringing and her comedic influences, is part of a season at the Atlantic that also includes Alice Birch's London hit, Anatomy of a Suicide, and world premieres from Stephen Adly Guirgis, Eboni Booth, Ethan Coen, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child writer Jack Thorne.
