MURRAY HILL: About to Break

  • Joe's Pub 425 Lafayette Street New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

Murray Hill: About To Break is an ecstatic and heartfelt comedy show about a man who loves to perform and performs to live. Called “the reigning patriarch of downtown performance” by The New York Times, Hill shines a spotlight on a man who keeps going despite years of struggles and heartbreak. He flips the record and plays the B-side of his seemingly sparkly showbiz life. Detailing his chronic middle-aged crisis, showbiz trials and tribulations, numerous comebacks and infamous ad-libbing, the show builds to Hill’s defining moment: a wrenching breakup song entitled “The Girl I Left Behind.” The show asks, “What drives him to keep going? How did he get here? Who the hell is this guy they call Mr. Showbiz?”
