Entertainment 'Schitt's Creek' star Noah Reid to make Broadway debut in comedy 'The Minutes'
Chiefs' Reid deflects attention as he approaches NFL history
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Good luck getting Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid to ruminate on the fact that he's nearing NFL history, just one win away from becoming the first to reach 100 with two different franchises. The answer you'll get is pretty standard whenever such topics arise. “I've been around a lot of good people. I'm very fortunate that way,” Reid said this week, as the Chiefs turned their attention to a Sunday night showdown in Baltimore. “I've been with two great organizations but, most of all, good people, whether coaches or players. I'm very fortunate that way.” The thing about that? It's not entirely true.
TORONTO — "Schitt's Creek" star Noah Reid is set to make his Broadway debut.
Producers say the Toronto actor and musician, who played Patrick on CBC's "Schitt's Creek," has joined the cast of the Tracy Letts play "The Minutes."
The Steppenwolf Theatre Company production, directed by Anna D. Shapiro, is set to begin performances at Studio 54 on March 19, 2022 and officially open April 7.
The political comedy originally debuted in Chicago in 2017.
It began previews at the Cort Theatre in New York in February 2020 but its scheduled opening date that March was halted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even when Emmy voters are for the most part predictable, they always throw in a couple of surprises. Last year, for instance, "Schitt's Creek" and "Succession" and "Watchmen" won, as expected, but Zendaya scored a shocking victory in the drama actress category for "Euphoria." And this year, members of the Television Academy voters already pulled some big surprises at the Creative Arts Emmys, most notably when they named "Dolly Parton's ChristmasThey'll no doubt have other surprises up their sleeves on Sunday at the all-vaccinated, all-tested Primetime Emmy Awards.
Original Broadway company members returning to the production include Letts, who won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for drama for his play "August: Osage County," and Jessie Mueller, winner of a 2014 Tony Award for her starring role in "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical."

"The Minutes" looks at a seemingly mundane city council meeting that reveals small-town secrets and speaks to greater factures in U.S. politics.
The play was a finalist for a Pulitzer in 2018.
Producers haven't announced which role Reid will play.
On "Schitt's Creek," he played the boyfriend to Dan Levy's character. The Emmy Award-winning sitcom ended its six-season run in April 2020.
Reid's other credits include the films "Score: A Hockey Musical" and "Buffaloed."
He also has numerous stage credits, including the title role in "Hamlet" at Toronto's Tarragon Theatre.
