The Cottage on Broadway Information
Jason Alexander makes his Broadway directorial debut with The Cottage, a new play starring Eric McCormack, Laura Bell Bundy, and Lilli Cooper. Check back for information on The Cottage tickets on New York Theatre Guide.
The Cottage is a play about a married woman having an extramarital affair with a married man. She decides to come clean to her husband and her lover's wife at the same time. More revelations ensue from there, bringing about plenty of humor — along with potentially deadly twists.
This farce, by Broadway-debut playwright Sandy Rustin (also known for writing the 2022 stage adaptation of Clue), is inspired by the works of celebrated writer Noël Coward. Coward's comedies often take place among the high society of early 20th-century England he experienced firsthand. Likewise, Rustin's comedy is set in the English countryside in 1923.
Leading the cast of The Cottage in New York is a trio of veteran stage and screen talent. Returning to Broadway for the first time since 2012 is Eric McCormack, who's best known for his Emmy Award-winning role as Will Truman on Will & Grace. Also making a grand return to Broadway is Tony nominee Laura Bell Bundy, who last starred as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde: The Musical from 2007-2008.
Rounding out the trio is Lilli Cooper, who performed in a different Broadway farce, Selina Fillinger's POTUS, last summer. She's also a Tony nominee for the Tootsie musical and has performed in Spring Awakening, Wicked, and SpongeBob SquarePants.
