Comedy by Neil Simon
Directed by: Richard Joyce
Plaza Suite is about what happens in the lives of different couples in Suite 719 in the Plaza Hotel.
Act one opens with Karen Nash reserving the Suite to celebrate her 24th anniversary. Karen is trying to put a spark in her failing marriage. But her husband Sam has his own plans.
In the second vignette, Jesse Kiplinger, ex-movie producer, tries to put the moves on his old flame Muriel Tate.
The third and final vignette is the story of Roy and Norma Hubley who try to persuade their nervous daughter Mimsey to leave the hotel bathroom in which she has locked herself on her much-anticipated wedding day.
This is classic Neil Simon!

Comedy by Patrick Barlow
Directed by: Jerry Seiff
The 39 Steps written by Patrick Barlow was adapted from a 1915 play by John Buchan and a 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock.
This comedy-parody won the Olivier Award for best Comedy in 2007 and the Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience in 2008.
Nominated for four other Tony Awards, this serious spy story is played mainly for laughs in the style of Monty Python with a script full of allusions to and puns on the titles of past Alfred Hitchcock films like Rear Window, Psycho, Vertigo and North by Northwest.
The plot centers around Richard Hannay, who meets spy Annabella Schmidt who is stabbed with a bread knife by the leader of an espionage organization called the “39 Steps”.
This quirky theatrical experience is a laugh a minute.
