Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick know how to mix business and love.

On Thursday night, they turned a visit to Broadway into a romantic evening – complete with hand holding and downplaying rumors that their marriage is in trouble.

After watching The American Plan, a play starring Mercedes Ruehl and Lily Rabe, Parker told PEOPLE, "It was really lovely."

Parker, looking divine in a polka dot dress, white coat and spiky black heels, also gracefully addressed recent reports that she and Broderick were close to splitting. Pressed by reporters about the rumors, she said, "We don't even bother to address them." She added that the best part of being married is "being married."

Defending their relationship wasn't the only thing on their minds, however.

The couple attended the play to support the director David Grindley, who will begin rehearsals for The Philanthropist, another Broadway play, with Broderick in six weeks.

As for the news that a sequel to Parker's hit movie Sex and the City is a done deal, Parker coyly told PEOPLE, "that's what I've heard but I wouldn't say that is the most official thing you'll ever read."
