The upcoming revival of Neil Simon’s play “Plaza Suite,” in which the real-life couple will portray a series of dysfunctional duos, is scheduled to begin preview performances on Feb. 25, 2022 at the Hudson Theatre with opening night set for March 28.
“We’re overjoyed to finally be able to welcome Broadway audiences to the Hudson Theatre to see Neil Simon’s celebration of New York, New Yorkers, and the wonderful ways they fall in love,” Broderick and Parker said in a statement. “We simply can’t wait.”
“Plaza Suite” was intended to arrive on Broadway in March of 2020, but the pandemic delayed its opening night. Before COVID-19 upended the live theater industry, “Plaza Suite” played a sold-out engagement at Boston’s Emerson Colonia Theatre in February of 2020.
John Benjamin Hickey is directing “Plaza Suite,” a three-act play that tells the story of three couples (all played by Broderick and Parker) in New York City’s famed Plaza Hotel. The show originally opened on Broadway in 1968 and was adapted into a 1971 film with Walter Matthau and Maureen Stapleton, as well as a 1987 TV movie starring Carol Burnett.
“Plaza Suite” isn’t the first time that Broderick and Parker will be sharing the stage. They previously co-starred in a production of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”
The show’s design team includes John Lee Beatty (set design), Jane Greenwood (costume design), Brian MacDevitt (lighting design), Scott Lehrer (sound design), Marc Shaiman (incidental music) and Jim Carnahan (casting director).
“Plaza Suite” is produced by Ambassador Theatre Group Productions, Gavin Kalin Productions, Hal Luftig, with James L. Nederlander, Douglas L. Meyer, Elizabeth Armstrong, Hunter Arnold, Caitlin Clements, Eilene Davidson Productions, Jeffrey Finn, Terry Schnuck, Smith and Brant Theatricals, Sherry and Kirk Wright, and Mike Isaacson.
