Sarah Jessica Parker’s Plaza Suite to Be Filmed Live on Broadway?

Will Two-time Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick and Two-time Emmy Award winner Sarah Jessica Parker film their hit stage duet Plaza Suite?

We might find out very soon. Here's what we know:


For the first time in 20 years, Matthew Broderick (The Producers, Oh Hello On Broadway) and Sarah Jessica Parker star on Broadway together in Plaza Suite, by legendary playwright Neil Simon. Plaza Suite will mark the first time Broderick and Parker will share a Broadway stage since the 1995 revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.The on and off-stage couple play three different couples in one hotel room: Karen and Sam, a long-married pair whose relationship may be ending, former high school sweethearts Muriel and Jesse who seem to be set for success, and Norma and Roy that are the mother and father of the bride, ready to celebrate their daughter’s nuptials — if only they can get her out of the bathroom.

Back in March, Sarah Jessica Parker told Variety that “there’s been interest in filming the production, and we’ll start having those conversations now. Filming was something we talked about after the Broadway shutdown, and that remains something we’re trying to figure out.”




Today we learn that talks were indeed underway to film the show live at the Hudson Theatre back in May 2022, with more than one streaming platform willing to foot the bill for the capture.

With the production set to close on Broadway on July 10th (following several extensions), rumors circulating in the theater world indicate a live capture might still happen during the show's last week on Broadway. 

While the capture was not confirmed by the production team at this time and with some very tight deadlines, we should find out soon enough if Plaza Suite will indeed be captured for posterity.

Plaza Suite began previews on Broadway on Friday, February 25, and opened Monday, March 28 after playing a sold-out pre-Broadway engagement at Boston's Emerson Colonial Theatre. The design team includes two-time Tony Award winner John Lee Beatty (set design), Tony Award winner Jane Greenwood (costume design), five-time Tony Award winner Brian MacDevitt (lighting design), and Tony Award winner Scott Lehrer (sound design).
