The play's co-lead, Sarah Jessica Parker, will go on this evening as scheduled.

It has been announced that Tony-nominee Matthew Broderick has been sidelined from tonight's performance of Neil Simon's Plaza Suite due to a positive Covid-19 test.

Broderick's absence from the show was confirmed in a statement from the production:

"Matthew Broderick tested positive before today's performance of Plaza Suite, despite strict adherence to COVID safety protocols. A second test has confirmed the diagnosis.

Sarah Jessica Parker has tested negative and will perform this evening.

Everyone wishes him a speedy recovery.

To ensure the safety of everyone at the Hudson Theatre, increased testing protocols were automatically triggered."

Two-time Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick and two-time Emmy Award winner Sarah Jessica Parker have officially made their return to Broadway in the long-awaited opening of Neil Simon's classic comedy about marriage, Plaza Suite under the direction of Tony Award winner John Benjamin Hickey.
