Neil Simon's California Suite is a comedy told in four separate playlets. Four different parties 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 3000 miles apart? In "The Visitor From Philadelphia," Marvin awakens with a horrible hangover and a young woman he doesn't know beside him in bed. Moments later, Marvin's wife arrives. Can this 15-year marriage survive whatever it was that Marvin did? In "The Visitors From London," Diana loses the Oscar to another woman and her husband to another man in the same night. This causes some inconvenient truths to intrude on their marriage of convenience. And in "The Visitors From Chicago," four best friends are enjoying a dream vacation together -- until an ultra-competitive tennis match turns them into enemies. Learn More

Wanted to see this one since we thoroughly enjoyed another one by same playwright- "Lend Me A Tenor". This show had a lot of the same hilarity & "disguised" personalities which are trademarks of this playwright's plays. Lots of neat twists & great comedic banter among the players. Only disappointment was the matinee turnout at this very small theatre (only 3 rows deep along 2 sides/at end of stage! Must have been a lot of folks who stayed home for NFL playoffs(?). All in all, we enjoyed the play!
In this hilarious comedy, down-on-their-luck English actors are performing Shakespeare in PA. They hear of an old lady who is about to die and leave her fortune to her long lost English nephews. They decide to impersonate them and get the cash. But, the relatives aren’t nephews, they’re nieces! Laughter abounds when the guys try to get rich as “Maxine and Stephanie.”
