Larry David is making his Broadway debut as both a playwright and actor in Fish in the Dark, a David-esque comedy centering around a death in a family. While it’s unfamiliar territory for the comedian, he’s seems confidently skeptical; “I haven’t been in a play since the eighth grade, when I did ‘Charley’s Aunt.’ I seem to remember wearing a dress.
