About You Will Get Sick

In Noah Diaz’s You Will Get Sick, a young man is shocked to receive a life-changing diagnosis. Overwhelmed, he turns to a stranger for help, hiring an older woman to break the news to his family and friends – thus setting into motion a series of events that will profoundly reshape both of their lives. This humane and piercing new play is a testament to the great challenges – and extraordinary joys – that come from having a body.

Roundabout Theatre Company presents the world premiere of You Will Get Sick off Broadway. Get You Will Get Sick tickets on TodayTix.

You Will Get Sick is a play about how people deal with having a body, particularly what they do when that body doesn't work right. The main character is a man who has just received a major medical diagnosis, and his body is breaking down. Unsure how to tell his friends and family, he decides to hire an older woman to do it for him. That decision sets off a chain of events that changes both their lives.

You Will Get Sick off Broadway marks playwright Noah Diaz's first professional production at Roundabout and in New York at large. He previously had his works Richard & Jane & Dick & Sally and The Swindlers produced in Baltimore. Diaz also has multiple screenwriting credits — he's written for shows including Hulu's Nine Perfect Strangers and Up Here, and Peacock's Joe vs. Carole.

Just as Diaz is a stage and screen talent behind the scenes, so, too, is lead actress Linda Lavin on the performance side. The six-time Tony nominee leads You Will Get Sick in New York; she previously won a Tony Award for Broadway Bound and has performed in more than 20 shows on and off Broadway since the 1960s. She's an inductee into the Theater Hall of Fame and is known to TV audiences nationwide for playing the title role in the sitcom Alice, earning a two Golden Globes and an Emmy nomination.
