The Good Doctor opened on Broadway at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre on November 27, 1973, and closed on May 25, 1974, after 208 performances and eight previews. Produced by Emanuel Azenberg and directed by A.J. Antoon, it starred René Auberjonois, Barnard Hughes, Marsha Mason, Christopher Plummer, and Frances Sternhagen. Frances Sternhagen won the Tony Award, Best Featured Actress in a Play, and it received four additional Tony Award nominations: Best Original Score (Peter Link), Best Featured Actor in a Play (René Auberjonois), and Best Lighting Design (Tharon Musser). Clive Barnes wrote in The New York Times that “There is much fun here-or at least here and there. It is, however, too anecdotal, with most stories closing with the dramatic ring of a punch-line. Mr. Simon's comic fancy is admirable.” Simon met his second wife, Marsha Mason during auditions for this play. A revival was produced by The Melting Pot Theater, at the Theater of the Riverside Church, New York City, from February 1998 through March 1, 1998, with Andre De Shields, Jane Connell, and Gordon Connell. A television movie was made based on the play, with Edward Asner, Richard Chamberlain, and Marsha Mason. It premiered on U.S. Public Television on November 8, 1978. The New York Times reviewer wrote: "Mr. Simon also includes a special piece for his wife, Marsha Mason, in which the appealing actress gets to play each of “The Three Sisters”...A press release notes that it is difficult to tell where Chekov stops and Simon begins. That's part of the problem.... The result falls awkwardly between gentle Chekhovian satire and clever Simon wisecracks. Neither writer is served to advantage."
