Summary

The Assembled Parties discount tickets! Introducing the Bascov family, by Tony Award winner Richard Greenberg ('Take Me Out', 'The American Plan') and MTC (Manhattan Theatre Club) begins their 10th theater collaboration with the world-premiere production of THE ASSEMBLED PARTIES. MTC Artistic Director Lynne Meadow ('Wit', 'Collected Stories') directs a stellar cast including Tony nominee Jessica Hecht and Tony and 2-time Emmy winner Judith Light.

THE ASSEMBLED PARTIES welcomes us to the world of the Bascovs, an Upper West Side secular Jewish family in 1980s and then later in 2000s, as the plot evolves, family secrets are exposed.

Set in a sprawling Central Park West apartment, former teen movie star Julie Bascov, her wealthy husband Ben and his sister Faye bring their families together for their traditional Christmas dinner. But tonight, things are not usual. A houseguest has joined the festivities for the first time and he unwittingly - or perhaps by design - insinuates himself into the family drama. Twenty years later, as 2001 approaches, the Bascovs' seemingly ideal family life may be about to crumble. The Assembled Parties is stunning new play infused with humor, an incisive portrait of a family grasping for stability at the dawn of a new millennium.

Ben Brantley, The New York Times.
There are tales, still told by the old ones of Broadway, of a time when Charm — with a capital C — was a cardinal virtue in the theater. It was an attribute that made plain actresses beautiful, and turned short, stocky men into matinee idols. Entire plays, it is said, were written in celebration of those who possessed this enviable trait, works filled with airy, tickling dialogue and the accouterments of tasteful wealth.

To my great surprise, a brand-new version of such a play has materialized at the Samuel J. Friedman Theater, and it is, in a word, charming. It is also smart, sad and so impossibly well-spoken you may feel like giving up on conversation. It is called The Assembled Parties.

Jesse Green, New York Magazine
"RICHARD GREENBERG's EXCELLENT new play is RICHLY EMOTIONAL and BEAUTIFULLY DETAILED, given a TOP-DRAWER mounting by LYNNE MEADOW. We all have these characters in our families, though we RARELY SEE THEM ON STAGE."

Marylin Stasio, Variety
"IT'S PERFECTLY OK TO WORSHIP AT JESSICA HECHT'S FEET. JUDITH LIGHT is SO PERFECT you'd think the part had been written for her. JEREMY SHAMOS is EXCELLENT!"
