Following a sell-out Broadway run, two-time Tony Award® winner Matthew Broderick and two-time Emmy Award® winner Sarah Jessica Parker, will lead the cast in the West End transfer of Neil Simon’s hit comedy PLAZA SUITE – playing a strictly limited season at the Savoy Theatre from 15 January to 31 March 2024 with tickets on sale in September 2023.
Matthew Broderick returns to the West End stage following his acclaimed run in The Starry Messenger in 2019. PLAZA SUITE will mark Sarah Jessica Parker’s West End debut.
In PLAZA SUITE, these two world-class actors play three different couples in one famous hotel room. Matthew Broderick plays Sam Nash/Jesse Kiplinger/Roy Hubley and Sarah Jessica Parker plays Karen Nash/Muriel Tate/Norma Hubley.
Karen and Sam are a long-married pair whose relationship may be headed for an early checkout. Muriel and Jesse are former high school sweethearts who seem destined for an extended stay. And Norma and Roy 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.
