'Conan O'Brien Can't Stop' Now Playing at the Lumiere Theatre

“I’m very angry, and I have to be honest about it. Sometimes I’m so mad I can’t even breathe.” So says an unsmiling Conan O’Brien, still stewing over his unceremonious dismissal from NBC’s Tonight Show, mired in the season of his discontent and planning a 32-city tour to serenade fans inflamed by his ousting.
That was last year, before O’Brien made his well-documented return to late-night TV on TBS, where he plays to some million viewers a night, one-third of his audience during his final six months on the Peacock. Whether the ginger-haired giant is still seething over the breakup is anyone’s guess, but in Rodman Flender’s Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop, the wounds are still fresh.
