It seems that there is more than Katie Holmes or a naked Harry Potter drawing New Yorkers to the theater these days. Last night, lovers of the stage flocked to opening night of The American Plan at the Samuel J. Freidman Theater. The play, written in 1990 by Richard Greenberg, portrays the lives of young characters spending the summer at a 1960 Catskills resort. The production is directed by David Grindley and is produced by the Manhattan Theater Club. Guests at the premiere included Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, Joan Rivers, Patricia Clarkson, Cherry Jones, and David Evangelista.
