After a string of COVID-related cancellations that saw the production take a hiatus April 7-13, Broadway's Plaza Suite resumes performances April 14 with one-half of its leading duo. Matthew Broderick, who was first to come down with COVID April 5, performs opposite standby and Tony nominee Erin Dilly (Nice Work If You Can Get It, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), with Broderick's wife and co-star Sarah Jessica Parker set to return for both matinee and evening performances April 16.
To allow ticket holders to cancelled performances to reschedule, the production has extended its run by a week, adding performances through July 6. Affected ticket holders will be given exclusive priority access to the 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.
The Neil Simon play follows three different twosomes (regularly 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, Dilly, and Parker, the cast includes Danny Bolero, Molly Ranson, and Eric Wiegand. Tony winner Michael McGrath is Broderick's standby, with Laurie Veldheer, Cesar J. Rosado, Brian Eng, and Olivia Hernandez serving as understudies.
