The party continues! Richard Greenberg’s Tony-nominated The Assembled Parties has extended for a second time at Broadway’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, starring Tony winner Judith Light, Jessica Hecht and Jeremy Shamos. Previously scheduled to perform through June 16, Manhattan Theatre Club's production will now play an additional three weeks, through July 7.
Set in 1980, The Assembled Parties tells the story of the Bascovs, an Upper West Side Jewish family living in a 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 when a new houseguest wheedles himself into the family drama, the Boscovs’ picture-perfect life is thrown off balance.
In addition to Light, Hecht and Shamos, the Manhattan Theatre Club production also stars Mark Blum, Jonathan Walker, Lauren Blumenfeld, Alex Dreier and Jake Silbermann.
Directed by Lynne Meadow, 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.
