Sarah Jessica Parker tests positive for COVID-19, sidelining Broadway play

NEW YORK (AP) — The second shoe dropped at “Plaza Suite” on Broadway.

Matthew Broderick first tested positive for COVID-19 and days later his wife and co-star, Sarah Jessica Parker, did it herself.

Parker tested positive on Thursday and the show was canceled. What happens with future performances “will be announced as soon as possible,” according to the producers.

The show had gone on despite Broderick’s absence on Tuesday with a stunt double, but with no star – who plays three couples in three acts in a hotel suite – available, producers had few options.

The twin ‘Plaza Suite’ cases come at a time when coronavirus cases are rising again in the city and on Broadway.

The musical “A Strange Loop” canceled its first preview performance after COVID-19 cases were discovered at the company and the off-Broadway musical “Suffs” went off the rails. Daniel Craig was also dropped from his “Macbeth” cover.
