First Will Ferrell. Now Robin Williams is coming to Broadway this season.

The comedian says he will perform his one-man show, "Weapons of Self-Destruction," for five performances at the Neil Simon Theatre, April 28 through May 3.

Williams has been on an 80-city tour of the show.

The comedian says: "The current state of the country's political and economic climate, while so hard on so many people, has been like gold for a comedian. There's just so much that's ripe for the picking."
