About the show

2h 0m | Already closed | Gallery Players (Brooklyn)

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.

Applause! Applause!

"’Plaza Suite’ is a play with three stories which all involve different characters, performed by some of the same actors, who are staying in Suite 719 of New York City's Plaza Hotel. This production is a must-see. The material holds up well and the acting is amazing. The entire ensemble cast is top-notch. You will have no complaints. The show is extremely entertaining. I highly recommend you see this old gem while you can.” Full Review
