Garry Marshall - Garry Marshall To Return To New York Theatre After 20 Years

Filmmaker Garry Marshall is set to make his return to the New York stage after two decades to direct a play about Hollywood screenwriter Billy Wilder and author Raymond Chandler.

The Pretty Woman director is bringing Billy and Ray to New York's Vineyard Theater this autumn (14), after taking charge of the play's world premiere in Burbank, California last year (13).

Billy and Ray is a comedy about the clash of the two duelling writers as they collaborated on the 1944 movie version of Chandler's novel Double Indemnity, inventing the film noir genre in the process.

Marshall's last New York directing credit was in 1993 for his production of Wrong Turn at Lungfish, starring George C. Scott and Tony Danza.

Billy and Ray is set to begin previews on 2 October (14).
