Matthew Broderick, who is now performing on Broadway in a revival of Neil Simon’s comedy ‘Plaza Suite’, has tested positive for coronavirus. He did not perform on Tuesday night and it is unclear when he will return to the show.
Broderick’s co-star Sarah Jessica Parker, who is also his wife, tested negative and went on Tuesday night opposite Michael McGrath, who is Broderick’s Tony Award-winning stunt double. (McGrath won in 2012 for a production of “Nice Work if You Can Get It” which featured Broderick.)
Broderick’s positive test result comes as coronavirus cases have risen again in New York and a number of Broadway shows have been affected.
Last Saturday, actor Daniel Craig was among several cast members of a new Broadway production of “Macbeth” to test positive, and that show has since canceled all performances through Monday.
