McCormack, Bundy, & Cooper to Star in The Cottage on Broadway

This summer, Emmy and Tony Award winner Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) will make his Broadway directorial debut, directing the Broadway premiere of The Cottage by Sandy Rustin at the Hayes Theater.

The Cottage will star Emmy Award winner Eric McCormack (Will & Grace), Tony Award nominee Laura Bell Bundy (Legally Blonde), and Tony Award nominee Lilli Cooper (Tootsie). The play begins performances on July 7, 2023, and opens on July 24, 2023, for a strictly limited engagement through October 29, 2023.

Jason Alexander said, “To be a Broadway director doing a new and delicious comedy with a team and cast I adore is the definition of a dream come true. I am incredibly excited to bring this hysterical play to an audience that is ready to laugh and have a fantastic time.”

“What thrills me about crafting comedy for the stage is the secret magic conjured by playful collaboration – with the director, the actors, the designers, and, of course, ultimately the audience,” said playwright Sandy Rustin. “I couldn’t dream of more perfect partners in magic making than comedy guru, Jason Alexander, this incredible cast, and our unparalleled creative team. We can’t wait to fill the Hayes with laughter at The Cottage this summer.”

The Cottage is a side-splitting farce by Sandy Rustin inspired by the works of Noel Coward. Set in the English countryside in 1923, this tale of sex, betrayal and love unfolds when Sylvia decides to expose her affair to both her husband and to her lover’s wife. The true meaning of fate, identity and marriage are called into question as a surprising and hilarious web of secrets unravels in this ridiculous – potentially murderous – romantic comedy.
