Both charming and disturbing, The Suit combines a rich musical score with remarkably simple staging as it tells the story of a husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his cheating wife: He asks that she treat her lover's abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home. Accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this surprising, sharp-witted tale set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.

Mapquest will say that "you've arrived" at your destination a few blocks too early. Park at the Union Square Garage and walk one block to the theater. We finished it off with dinner at Lori's Diner and listened to the fans greeting the actors at the back door exit. So fun!travel • Sep 16 2013 star this tip starred

We had a wonderful time! We were familiar with the musical as we saw the movie many years ago, starring William Daniels. And, I have the soundtrack album.
The sets, voices and acting was first-rate! I was surprised at how good the singing was! And the timing and the cues were spot on!
We would recommend this musical to others without reservation!
