The Mother****** With The Hat Summary

Chris Rock makes his Broadway debut in The Mother****** with the Hat, a world premiere comedy by Stephen Adly Guirgis. Also starring Bobby Cannavale and Annabella Sciorra, The Mother****** with the Hat is a razor-tongued verbal cage-match about unadulterated love and uncontrolled adultery.

“Chris Rock delivers! Highly Entertaining, Rock has flawless timing!” - Scott Brown, New York Magazine

“Vibrant, hilarious, marvelously intense, and blazingly good.” - Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“A joy to behold. One of the best new plays in ages.” - Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

“Moving and powerful. Delightful and tender.” Mark Kennedy, Associated Press 

A Hard-Hitting Role That’s Close to Home (NY Times)
Bobby Cannavale, who is nominated for a Tony for playing a recovering addict in The Mother****** With the Hat, brings an unstinting physical, intellectual and emotional commitment to his roles.

Comedian, Rebranded (NY Times)
Chris Rock is getting ready for his Broadway debut in a Stephen Adly Guirgis play, a move in keeping with a recent spate of internal and external reassessments of middle-aged comedians.
