The Goodbye Girl

The Goodbye Girl

One of musical theatre’s rare, modern romantic comedies

A touching romance against the backdrop of Manhattan

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. Hamlisch’s brassy, giddy, and rhythmic score.
