Two-time Tony winner Matthew Broderick sat down with Seth Meyers on Late Night to talk about the Broadway revival of Plaza Suite, in which he stars with his real-life spouse Sarah Jessica Parker. Watch the video of his April 5 appearance above as Broderick chats about returning to Broadway in a Neil Simon play (the actor made his Broadway debut in Simon's Brighton Beach Memoirs) and how he covered for an opening night mishap when he busted through a "locked" stage door.
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 June 26.
The work follows three different twosomes (played by Broderick and Parker), each spending an evening in the famed Plaza Hotel's suite 719: 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.
Broderick recently tested positive for COVID-19 and did not take the stage for the April 5 performance. Standby Michael McGrath went on his place, playing opposite Parker.
