Richard Greenberg's The Assembled Parties, starring Tony winner Judith Light and Tony nominees Jessica Hecht and Jeremy Shamos, begins performances March 21 at Broadway's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Directed by Lynne Meadow, the Manhattan Theatre Club production will officially open on April 17.
The Assembled Parties revolves around the Bascovs, an Upper West Side Jewish family in 1980. In a large Central Park West apartment, former movie star Julie Bascov (Hecht) and her sister-in-law Faye (Light) bring their families together for a holiday meal. But once a new houseguest wheedles himself into the family drama, the Bascovs’ picture-perfect way of life is thrown into jeopardy.
In addition to Light, Hecht and Shamos, the production also stars Mark Blum, Jonathan Walker, Lauren Blumenfield, Alex Dreier and Jake Silbermann.
The Assembled Parties features scenic design by Santo Loquasto, costume design by Jane Greenwood, lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski and sound design by Obadiah Eaves.
