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
The two works focus on women at extreme moments of their relationships. One is at the beginning, afraid to say hello. The other is at the end and afraid to say goodbye. Each woman has one tool in common to help them make their journey: a telephone. The two stories will explore the themes of the telephone as a distraction, a shield, a weapon, and ultimately as an extension of our very selves, the ways we really talk—and don’t talk—to those we love.
Joining them on stage will be three of Las Vegas’ most brilliant opera voices, Marcie Ley, Athena Mertes, and Nathan Van Arsdale. This SCO production will be uniquely staged; the two works will be completely interwoven, one in color and the other in black and white. Everyone from opera newbies to seasoned lovers of these two works should be sure not to miss this lush and provocative dual production as it’s never been presented before.
A portion of the proceeds from this production will be donated to Variety – The Children’s Charity of Southern Nevada. www.varietysn.org
