Broadway’s Hottest Ticket is Back: Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker Check into “Plaza Suite” Next February



“Plaza Suite” is back. Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker will check in next February with a March opening night.

Like everyone else, they are two years late coming to Broadway. But we’re glad to have them back in the Neil Simon comedy.

Their buddy, John Benjamin Hickey, currently starring in HBO’s “In Treatment,” will direct.

Just think, they’ve been checked into the Plaza for two years. A little expensive. And no room service since the Hotel’s been closed through the pandemic.

Since the original announcement, SJP has upped the game by announcing a revived “Sex and the City” series for HBO Max. Now you know opening night for “Plaza Suite” will be a scene and a half, much needed on Broadway.

Broderick is loaded with film credits including the beloved “Ferris Bueller,” which haunts him, I’m sure. But he’s really a Broadway baby, from “The Producers” to “Biloxi Blues” and “Brighton Beach Memoirs.”

The couple starred in a revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” back in 1996 to much acclaim.
