Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick will make their West End debut.
Sarah Jessica Parker will make her West End debut in Plaza Suite, opposite her husband Matthew Broderick, next year.
The adaptation of Neil Simon’s 1968 drama will premiere in January at the Savoy Theatre.
Parker and Broderick have already been in the Broadway show, which had a successful run of 19 weeks.
The two actors play three distinct couples who stay in the same famous hotel room throughout the show.
Karen and Sam Nash, the first couple, are a long-married couple whose marriage is fraying as they approach their anniversary.
Muriel Tate and Jesse Kiplinger, the second couple, are former high school sweethearts whose adult lives have taken them in various paths.
Norma and Roy Hubley, the third pair, are the mother and father of a bride who refuses to leave the suite’s bathroom to attend her own wedding.
All three acts of the drama take place at New York’s Plaza Hotel Suite 719.
The real-life pair “have a flagrant enjoyment in playing opposite each other, which is the best and perhaps the only reason to book in,” noted the Guardian’s Alexis Soloski in a three-star review of the Broadway show.
“The show itself is somewhat lost in time,” Variety’s Daniel D’Addario remarked. But Parker and Broderick’s expertly crafted chemistry makes it feel ageless.”
Parker received two Emmy nominations for her performance as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, a character she has since revisited in the spin-off series And Just Like That.
She’s also been in movies including Hocus Pocus, Failure to Launch, and I Don’t Know How She Does It.
Broderick has appeared in Inspector Gadget, The Cable Guy, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and most recently in the West End in 2019 in the Starry Messenger.
He received two Tony Awards for his work in Brighton Beach Memoirs and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
John Benjamin Hickey, who directed the new Broadway rendition of Plaza Suite, will also direct the West End adaptation.
It will run at the Savoy Theatre from January 15 to March 31, 2024.
