The Assembled Parties - 2013 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$67-$120

THE ASSEMBLED PARTIES welcomes us to the world of the Bascovs, an Upper West Side Jewish family in 1980. In a sprawling Central Park West apartment, former movie star Julie Bascov and her sister-in-law Faye bring their families together for their traditional holiday dinner. But tonight, things are not usual. A house guest has joined the festivities for the first time and he unwittingly - or perhaps by design - insinuates himself into the family drama. Twenty years later, as 2001 approaches, the Bascovs' seemingly picture-perfect life may be about to crumble. A stunning new play infused with humor, THE ASSEMBLED PARTIES is an incisive portrait of a family grasping for stability at the dawn of a new millennium.

Featured Reviews For The Assembled Parties


The Sellout - Wallstreet Journal
Fortunately for the audience, a considerable number of Mr. Greenberg's quips are being cracked by Jessica Hecht and Judith Light, who do their damnedest. Unfortunately for the audience, that's not enough.

The Assembled Parties - Time Out NY
Richard Greenberg's elegantly moving The Assembled Parties is somewhere between a slice of life and a slice of mille-feuille...A brisk draft of intelligence blows straight through the script, tempering moments of sentiment with astringency and surprise. In Lynne Meadow's lovely Manhattan Theatre Club staging, the first act is a whirl of quips and overlapping scenes-Santo Loquasto's ingenious set spins the stage from room to room-and the second is ominously still, shadowed by past and future death. At the center of both is Julie, played with feathery otherworldliness by Jessica Hecht in one of the year's most absorbing performances.

Apparently, not all upper west side Jewish families spend Christmas Day going out for Chinese food and a movie.  Take the extended family of Richard Greenberg's The Assembled Parties, who spend two December 25ths, twenty years apart, in a perfunctory celebration of the holiday while complaining about the inability to find a plumber to come right over fix a leaky pipe (Even when offered a 'Nativity surcharge.') and referring to the season's continual playing of Bing Crosby singing 'White Christmas' as, 'a tiny acoustic rape every time you leave the apartment.'
