George Clooney To Make His Broadway Debut With Good Night, And Good Luck.

The production will be directed by David Cromer & Clooney will make his appearance in the 2024–2025 season.

Hollywood icon George Clooney will make his Broadway acting debut next year with Good Night, and Good Luck.

In the stage version of the 2005 film that won Clooney nods for both writing & directing and placed him among the best picture contenders, he will portray the renowned TV journalist Edward R. Murrow.

“I am honored, after all these years, to be coming back to the stage and especially, to Broadway, the art form and the venue that every actor aspires to,” George said in the press release.

In addition to directing the 2005 picture, The Out Of Sight actor also portrayed Fred W. Friendly, who collaborated with David Strathairn as producer of Edward Murrow’s television show, See It Now. Six Academy Awards were nominated for the movie, including best picture. Additionally, Heslov and Clooney collaborated on Suburbicon, The Monuments Men, and The Ides Of March.

The production will be directed by David Cromer, who was awarded a Tony Award for his work on The Band’s Visit. “Edward R. Murrow operated from a kind of moral clarity that feels vanishingly rare in today’s media landscape. There was an immediacy in those early live television broadcasts that today can only be effectively captured on stage, in front of a live audience,” David said.

George Clooney will make an appearance in the 2024–2025 season, which also marks Robert Downey Jr.’s Broadway debut.
