Neil Simon's California Suite is really four separate comedy playlets with one common thread. In each, people from various cities travel to California during different time periods and stay in the same Beverly Hills Hotel suite, bringing their problems, anxieties and comic marital dilemmas with them. In "The Visitor From New York," Hannah loves living in New York, while her ex-husband, Billy, loves L.A. Can two happily divorced parents raise their only daughter while living 3,000 miles apart? "The Visitor From Philadelphia" finds Marvin waking up with a horrible hangover -- and a young woman he doesn't know beside him in bed, soon followed by the arrival of his wife. In "The Visitors From London," when actress Diana loses the Oscar to another woman and her husband to another man on the same night, some inconvenient truths intrude on their marriage of convenience. And four best friends are enjoying a dream vacation together in "The Visitors From Chicago" -- until an ultra-competitive tennis match turns them into bitter enemies. In a unique twist, Onyx Theatre presents the show with a different director for each vignette. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Morphotic is the manifestation of Franz Kafka’s neurosis and self-loathing. It simultaneously explores his fictional work and wrestles with his real-life demons.
Cynthia Vodovoz stars as the writer and is joined by Insurgents Jason Morrison, Brandon McClenahan. F. Ed Knutson and guest artists Natascha Negro, Thom Chrastka, Derrick Stroman, Ariana Miner, and Sarah Spraker. The show features original soundscapes and projections, and choreography by Insurgent Jenna Wurtzberger. The production is created and directed by Insurgo Associate Artistic Director Shawn Hackler, written by Hackler and using works from Kafka.
“It’s ultimately that classic story of an artist,” says John Beane, Artistic Director of the Insurgo Theater Movement. “Hackler has crafted a feast that is visually and stylistically startling – but what we get to are the things that every man faces. What is an artist? What is a man? How much do we sacrifice for the ones we love before we diminish what they loved in the first place? What is our responsibility to the world?”
