The Assembled Parties are now disassembling, as the Tony Award nominated production ends its run at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre today. The closure of The Assembled Parties, which was originally scheduled to shutter on June 2, follows three extensions due to the play’s significant popularity with audiences.
Written by Richard Greenberg and produced by the Manhattan Theatre Club, The Assembled Parties introduced audiences to an affluent Jewish family living on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, and the friend of the family who is drawn into their drama. The play takes place in 1980 in the first act and in the year 2000 in the second act.
Co-star Judith Light won the Tony Award this year for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play, as well as the Drama Desk Award.
