The Goodbye Girl

The Goodbye GirlBased on Neil Simon’s 1977 award-winning film, THE GOODBYE GIRL follows the unlikely comic romance between Paula, a bitter single mother and former Broadway dancer who has been jilted one too many times, and Elliot, an opinionated actor who shows up unexpectedly with a lease to sublet her apartment.

LOS ANGELES, CA:  Musical Theatre Guild, the winner of the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Margaret Harford Award for sustained excellence in the theatre, will continue their 24th Anniversary season with THE GOODBYE GIRL, the musical adaptation of Neil Simon’s film. The one-night-only concert will take place at Glendale’s historic Alex Theatre on Sunday, November 10, 2019 at 7:00 PM.

Based on Neil Simon’s 1977 award-winning film, THE GOODBYE GIRL follows the unlikely comic romance between Paula, a bitter single mother and former Broadway dancer who has been jilted one too many times, and Elliot, an opinionated actor who shows up unexpectedly with a lease to sublet her apartment. Musical sparks ensue. Simon’s collaborators for the musical were the legendary Marvin Hamlisch (A CHORUS LINE) and David Zippel (CITY OF ANGELS).

After an out-of-town tryout in Chicago, THE GOODBYE GIRL opened on Broadway in 1993 starring Bernadette Peters, and, in his Broadway debut, Martin Short. It ran for 188 performances, was nominated for five Tony© Awards and won the Drama Desk Award for Mr. Hamilish’s brassy, giddy and rhythmic score.

THE GOODBYE GIRL will star Wendy Rosoff and Will Collyer as Paula and Elliot with fellow MTG company members Tal Fox, Anthony Gruppuso, Jennifer Knox, Gabriel Navarro, Jeffrey Scott Parsons and Mark C. Reis in supporting roles.  They will be joined by guest artists Jenelle Lynn Randall as Mrs. Crosby, Maya Somers as Lucy along with Bella Stine, Chelsea Morgan Stock and Olivia Zenetzis.  THE GOODBYE GIRL will be directed by Linda Kerns with musical direction by Dennis Castellano, choreography by Michelle Elkin and is under the production supervision of Todd Gajdusek.
