Richard Greenberg's The Assembled Parties has extended its run at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre for the third time. Directed by Lynne Meadow, the play will now end its limited engagement on July 28. Starring two-time Tony Award winner Judith Light, Jessica Hecht and Jeremy Shamos, The Assembled Parties opened on April 17.
Set in 1980, The Assembled Parties tells the story of the Bascovs, a 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.
The Assembled Parties also features Mark Blum, Jonathan Walker, Lauren Blumenfeld, Alex Dreier and Jake Silbermann.
