Previews will begin Feb. 2 at the Cort Theatre and opening night is set for March 5.

David, who also was the co-creator, head writer and executive producer of "Seinfeld," has called his play "a comedy about a death in the family."

In 2009, he starred in Woody Allen's comedy "Whatever Works" and co-wrote and starred in the HBO film "Clear History."
