About the show

Neil Simon’s classic comedy offers a portrait of three couples successively occupying Suite 719 at the Plaza Hotel.  More…

A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 years before. This wry tale of marriage in tatters is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. Over the years she has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where guests await her on what should be the happiest day of her life.

See it if One of Simon's best efforts Well played & well paced for the most part, 2nd act sketch dated & draggy but final act is Simon at dizzing best

Don't see it if Acting not as sharp as needed but Simon & Tebo shine in Act 3 Humor is definitely dated but Simon holds up with this decent revisit

Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you can place yourself in a different time period to enjoy the laughs of three different situations. Good acting and use of stage.

Don't see it if you are bothered by a comical play that does not relate well to current times even though the three subjects are still alive today.

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing

See it if you enjoy character studies, one-act plays (this show is composed of 3), & classic comedies. Or you like discovering great, unknown talent.

Don't see it if you prefer more "heady," challenging fare. This show is light and fun, but also contains some substance (the first act in particular).

Entertaining, Funny

See it if You enjoy Neil Simon. This is an old school classic comedy.

Don't see it if If you are expecting one full length play. This is three one act plays that have nothing to do with each other.

Also I had no idea What I was walking into but I was pleasantly surprised b... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Dated, Fluffy, Chatty audience

See it if you enjoy a comic romp & don't mind vignette format & actors in multiple roles; you're a big Neil Simon fan. Game cast, esp Alyssa Simon.

Don't see it if you want a traditional play & meaty topics. A community theatre, audience members chatted freely thruout—this is apt to mar your experience.

Non-stop laughter! excellent cast performances!, Lovely set and lighting!, Reminded me of how i miss the smart sassy timeless wit of that neil simon era. run!

See it if If you want a great time and charmed, mature laughs (winged with some sadnesses, no doubt, at times) - from a master playwright. Great!

Don't see it if FYI, I see others mention 'community theater - GalleryPlayers IS an "Equity Showcase Theatre" compares to any other off-off Bway theater.

This production is a must-see. The material holds up well and the acting is amazing. The entire ensemble cast is t...
