Broadway is buzzing about the Manhattan Theatre Club production of Richard Greenberg's new play The Assembled Parties, starring Tony winner Judith Light and Tony nominees Jessica Hecht and Jeremy Shamos. The show is set to open on April 17 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, where it will play a limited engagement run through June 2. Set in 1980 in a sprawling Central Park West apartment, The Assembled Parties revolves around the Bascovs, an Upper West Side Jewish family. Former movie star Julie Bascov (Hecht) and her sister-in-law Faye (Light) bring their families together for a holiday meal. But once a houseguest (Shamos) wheedles himself into the family drama, the Bascovs’ picture-perfect way of life is thrown into jeopardy.
