American actress Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband and co-lead Matthew Broderick both contracted the coronavirus.

The pair's Broadway play "Plaza Suite," announced the Thursday performance cancellation of their play on Twitter and confirmed that updates on future performances are forthcoming.

The announcement comes as several Broadway shows are having to cancel performances due to the virus.

“Today Sarah Jessica Parker tested positive for COVID with a second test confirming the diagnosis,” the statement reads.

“With both Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker positive for COVID, tonight’s performance of "Plaza Suite" is canceled. The producers apologize for the inconvenience this has caused audience members.”

“Everyone wishes Matthew and Sarah Jessica a speedy recovery,” the statement adds.

On Tuesday, Broderick tested positive for coronavirus, leading the actor to step back from the week’s remaining performances to quarantine and recover. His understudy Michael McGrath performed alongside Parker since then.

Directed by John Benjamin Hickey and written by Simon, the play follows three different couples staying in the famed Plaza hotel.

It also stars Danny Bolero, Molly Ranson, and Eric Wiegand, with Erin Dilly serving as a standby for Parker.

The show began previews on February 25 and officially opened on March 28 at the Hudson Theatre. The show is set to run through June 26.

"Plaza Suite" marks the first time both actors have shared a Broadway stage in the same production since 1996’s "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying".
