B’way finally delivers ‘Letter’

Celebs find 'Paris' in Gotham

It was married-couples night at the Off Broadway premiere of Jon Robin Baitz‘s latest, “The Paris Letter.”

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, along with Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates, took in opening night Thursday at the Laura Pels Theater. The play had been a long time in coming to Gotham.

“I’d heard about ‘The Paris Letter’ for years,” said director Doug Hughes. “It was this famous unproduced play.”

Producers David Stone (“Wicked”) and then Elizabeth I. McCann (“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”) were variously attached to bring “The Paris Letter” to Broadway.

Baitz called his long-delayed Broadway debut “a dream deferred. When I was informed of the scary economics of Broadway, it ceased to be a priority.”
