Sarah Jessica Parker tested positive for coronavirus


Sarah Jessica Parker, who is currently starring on Broadway in a revival of Neil Simon’s comedy “Plaza Suite,” tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday, according to a production spokesperson.

Parker’s co-star Matthew Broderick, who is also her husband, had tested positive earlier this week and has been absent from the show since Tuesday. The show had continued with its understudy, Michael McGrath, but will be canceled Thursday evening, and it is not known when it will resume.

“Plaza Suite” is now the third Broadway show currently closed by the resurgent coronavirus in New York, a surge in cases fueled by the Omicron subvariant known as BA.2. A revival of ‘Macbeth’ has canceled more than a week of performances after its star, Daniel Craig, and other members of the company tested positive, and a new musical called ‘A Strange Loop’, which has won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2020, postponed the start of his preview performances, also citing positive tests. Both shows hope to be back on stage on Monday.

A highly anticipated Off Broadway musical, “Suffs” at the Public Theater, also canceled performances this week, including its scheduled opening night, due to virus cases.
