Sarah Jessica Parker, star of Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere of Amanda Peet's acclaimed new play The Commons of Pensacola, will appear on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live," as a live guest tonight, December 18 at 11:00PM. Locally, the program can be found on Bravo, (Time Warner Cable channel 18.

The limited engagement has already been extended due to overwhelming demand and must close on Sunday, January 26. This is the last possible extension for the production.

THE COMMONS OF PENSACOLA stars Emmy and Tony award winner Blythe Danner, Zoe Levin (The Way Way Back), Ali Marsh ("In Plain Sight"), Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Jessica Parker, Michael Stahl-David (Cloverfield), and Nilaja Sun (No Child...).

Judith (Blythe Danner) has been divested of her assets and forced to leave her luxurious New York life after her husband's Wall Street scam became headline news. When her daughter Becca (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Becca's filmmaker boyfriend (Michael Stahl-David) pay Judith a visit to the one bedroom condo Judith now occupies in Pensacola, Florida, everyone's motives are called into question. How will past and present circumstances inform how this family moves into the future?

THE COMMONS OF PENSACOLA is an incisive and funny new play about trying to love your family even when you hate what they've done.

This new play marks the reunion of Danner and Parker who previously starred together in MTC's 1995 hit production Sylvia by A.R. Gurney.
