Sarah Jessica Parker is returning to Broadway to star in a brand-new play opposite her partner, Matthew Broderick.
The couple will lead the cast of the revival of Neil Simon’s marriage comedy Plaza Suite, which will be directed by Tony Award winner John Benjamin Hickey.
Parker and Broderick last appeared on the Broadway phase together in the 1995 revival of How to Be successful in Company Without Truly Attempting.
” I feel I’ve waited a lifetime,” the Sex & the City star wrote on Instagram, revealing the production and adding she will be working with someone she gets to “enjoy onstage and off”.
Plaza Suite is set for a 17-week engagement at the Hudson Theater, with previews starting in mid-March and a main opening set for 13 April.
Parker was last on Broadway 22 years back, when she starred in As soon as Upon a Mattress, while Tony winner Broderick last appeared on the New York phase in 2016’s Sylvia.
The Ferris Bueller’s Day of rest star was among the friends and fans who commemorated legendary playwright Simon following his death last year.
” It was my great good fortune that my really first Broadway play was written by Neil Simon,” he composed. “He also wrote my very first film. I owe him a profession.”
Broderick and Parker will get ready for the Broadway run of Plaza Suite by first taking the play to the Emerson Colonial Theater in Massachusetts, where the actress made her stage launching in The Innocents in 1976.
