The Commons of Pensacola New York Tickets

The Commons of Pensacola Offers a Heartfelt Glimpse into Family Relationships

Theatergoers everywhere are discovering the charm and pathos of "The Commons of Pensacola." A study of contemporary familial relationships, this compelling drama explores the difficulty — and ultimately, the necessity — of finding forgiveness and acceptance for each others' faults, idiosyncrasies and even peccadilloes and misadventures.


New York socialite Judith is facing an upheaval; her Wall Street broker husband has been indicted for fraud, and she must leave her life of luxury and begin a new life. She moves to a simple one-bedroom condo in Pensacola, Florida, where she is joined by her visiting daughter Becca and Becca's boyfriend, a fledgling filmmaker. Even as they mourn the past, each member of the household must make new moves, new decisions and face a new future. Along the way, they learn a certain measure of commiseration as well as acceptance, so that they manage to not only forgive, but even to inspire each other.

Performance Schedule

"The Commons of Pensacola" is continuing an extended off-Broadway run at the Manhattan Theatre Club.

Actress Amanda Peet says that she was inspired to write "The Commons of Pensacola" after reading about Ruth Madoff, the wife of convicted Wall Street scammer Bernie Madoff. Thanks to the play's success, Peet was encouraged to try her hand again. As a result, she's already halfway through writing her second play.

"The Commons of Pensacola" is only 80 minutes long and, unusually for most shows, is performed without an intermission. The play also marks Sarah Jessica Parker's return to the stage after being away for more than a decade.


"The Commons of Pensacola" features an ensemble cast led by Blythe Danner in the role of Judith and Sarah Jessica Parker in the role of Becca.

Acclaimed actress Blythe Danner is no stranger to the Broadway stage, with a New York theater resume that includes productions of "Butterflies Are Free" (for which she won a Tony), "A Streetcar Named Desire," "Follies" and "Nice Work If You Can Get It." Actress Sarah Jessica Parker may be more famous for her role as Carrie on TV's "Sex and the City," but she has also appeared on Broadway in shows as diverse as "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" and "Once Upon a Mattress."
