The Goodbye Girl

The Goodbye Girl

A warm, light-hearted romantic comedy musical based on Neil Simon's award-winning film.

The Goodbye Girl turns the film comedy into an adventure about love and commitment. It follows the unlikely romance between Paula, a bitter single mother who has been jilted one too many times, and Eliot, the opinionated actor who shows up – unexpectedly – on her doorstep with a lease to sublet her apartment. It features the same unique humor that has made Neil Simon the most popular playwright in Broadway history. Add a score by Marvin Hamlisch (A Chorus Line) and David Zippel (City of Angels, Disney's Hercules, Disney's Mulan), and you have an instant contemporary classic.

The Goodbye Girl is a jubilant musical with catchy tunes, and a joyous addition to any theatre season.
