Plaza Suite to be performed at Morgan-Wixson Theatre
The Morgan-Wixson Theatre in Santa Monica will present Neil Simon’s classic comedy Plaza Suite, beginning Saturday, Jan. 19 through Feb. 10.
Performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays, at Morgan-Wixson, 2627 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica.
Directed by Michael Rothhaar, the 1968 comedy is a trio of stories, related by the fact that they all take place in Suite 719 in New York’s legendary Plaza Hotel, during its glory days.
In the first segment, a suburban couple stays in the suite where they honeymooned over two decades earlier while their house is being painted. The wife has romance on her mind, but the husband can’t disconnect himself from the office for certain reasons.
The second segment has a Hollywood producer inviting his now married, former high school girlfriend for a cocktail and to say hello. The last story deals with a couple whose daughter, a young bride, has second thoughts about her wedding, locks herself in the bathroom and refuses to come out.
The cast includes Alicia Craff, Karol Garrison, Howard Lockie and Andrea Stradling. The original Broadway production ran for 1,097 performances and was nominated for a Tony Award.
The associate producer is Brian Raine and Laura Levin is the production stage manager. Set and lighting designs are by William Wilday, while costume design is by Kristy Pace.
Tickets are $20 for general admission, or $18 for students and seniors.
