"I would do another Broadway show if all the stars were aligned properly, if things worked out, but not with Matthew," said Parker. "Matthew and I have separate professional careers. I am a great audience for Matthew and a great support. I think I serve him well in that capacity... When I think of the two of us going through the very painful process of putting together a Broadway play or musical, I don't know how our family could survive it."
Sarah Jessica Parker and Alan Cumming played the leads in a Jan. 23 reading of Don't Follow Me, I'm Lost, Too, a new comedy by the currently hot playwright Douglas Carter Beane. The New York Post reported at the time that Parker hoped to appear in the play with Broderick.
The play is about a husband-and-wife gossip-column team who work at a New York City tabloid very much like the New York Post. It draws on a 1988 incident involving former Post columnist Aileen Mehle. Mehle was discovered to have penned a column about a society event while never having actually attended the soiree—and, in fact, she was on vacation in the Lesser Antilles at the time.
In the Beane play, the writers begin to invent fake events and celebrities. Eventually, their tricks catch up with them.
