Chris Rock to make his Broadway debut next year

New York: Comedian Chris Rock will make his Broadway debut in a new play about love and fidelity with an X-rated title.

Rock will join Bobby Cannavale, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Annabella Sciorra and Yul Vazquez in a production of Stephen Adly Guirgis` play "The Mother ... With the Hat." (The title includes an expletive.)

The 14-week engagement begins previews on March 22 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.

The play centers on Jackie (Cannavale), a parolee who is newly sober, and his girlfriend, who is not. Rock will play Jackie`s sponsor.

Anna D. Shapiro, who won a Tony for directing "August: Osage County," will helm the project.
