In Neil Simon’s “Plaza Suite,” Feb. 11 – 25, audiences are invited to check into suite 719 at New York’s Plaza Hotel in the swinging 1960s and end up meeting three comical couples: a long-married couple revisiting their honeymoon suite to rekindle the flame; a Hollywood producer on the prowl, reunited with his childhood sweetheart; and the parents of a nervous bride who has locked herself in the bathroom!
Artistic director Andrew Kato’s season wraps up with “42nd Street,” March 12 – 31. This love letter to Broadway is the ultimate show biz fairy tale of the chorus kid who becomes an overnight star.
