The Goodbye Girl - 1993 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Based on the screenplay for the 1977 film by Neil Simon

It's hard to go wrong with this warm, light-hearted show that is one of the musical theatre's rare modern romantic comedies.

THE GOODBYE GIRL is based on Neil Simon's well-known film about an unlikely romance between Paula, a bitter, single mother who has been jilted one too many times, and Eliot, the opinionated actor who shows up on her doorstep with a lease to sublet her apartment. It features the same unique humor that has made Neil Simon the most popular playwright in Broadway history. Add a score by Marvin Hamlisch (A CHORUS LINE) and David Zippel (CITY OF ANGELS,  Disney's Hercules and Mulan) and you have an instant contemporary classic!
