Larry David is one step closer to Broadway! As reported in January, the Seinfeld co-creator was working with Jerry Seinfeld on a play to hit the Great White Way. Now, Showbiz411 reports that the play, titled Shiva, is Broadway bound with David not only writing, but also starring. Scott Rudin will produce.center_img View Commentslast_img
