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.
