After initially cancelling just the Thursday evening April 7 performance and later all performances through April 10, the Broadway revival of Plaza Suite has cancelled the all performances through April 13 following a positive COVID-19 test result for its star Sarah Jessica Parker. Her husband and co-star Matthew Broderick tested positive April 5, but the show went on with standby Michael McGrath in his place. News about performances after the 13th is forthcoming.
To allow ticket holders to affected performances to reschedule, the production has extended its run by a week, adding performances through July 6 (Before this most recent cancellation, the production had extended through July 2). Affected ticket holders will be given exclusive priority access to the five new performances at the originally booked ticket price in a comparable location. The point of purchase will contact ticket holders to reschedule their tickets or arrange a refund.
Plaza Suite opened March 28 at the Hudson Theatre, under the helm of director John Benjamin Hickey. Previews began February 25 for the limited engagement, set to continue through July 6.
Neil Simon's Plaza Suite follows three different twosomes (played by Broderick and Parker), each spending an evening in the famed Plaza Hotel: one couple dealing with difficulties in their marriage on their 24th anniversary, a pair of high-school sweethearts reuniting after many years apart, and the frenzied parents of a jittery bride on her wedding day.
In addition to Broderick and Parker, the cast includes Danny Bolero, Molly Ranson, and Eric Wiegand. Tony winner Michael McGrath and Tony nominee Erin Dilly standby for Broderick and Parker, respectively, with Laurie Veldheer, Cesar J. Rosado, Brian Eng, and Olivia Hernandez serving as understudies.
