Three Directors and three casts check-in for a comic stay at Suite 719 of New York's historic Plaza Hotel as Appleseed Productions proudly presents Neil Simon's Plaza Suite.
The production opens Friday, June 20th at 8pm and runs Friday and Saturdays evenings through July 5th on the air-conditioned Atonement Stage, 116 West Glen Ave in Syracuse. There will also be two Sunday matinees, June 22 and 29 at 2pm. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for students and seniors. Admission also includes complimentary beverages and dessert at intermission.
The first of Simon's "Suite" comedies, the play tells the stories of three separate couples who check into Suite 719 of the Plaza. The characters include an anniversary couple whose wife can't quite remember whether its 23 or 24 years and her husband, who is deep in mid-life; a Hollywood producer who turns to an old high school flame in an attempt to find something real; and a mother and father of a bride who has locked herself in the bathroom on the day of her lavish wedding.
For this summertime comedy, Appleseed has assembled a creative team, headed up by three directors making their Atonement Stage directorial debuts. Bryan Allen Jones directs Binaifer Dabu and Bob Fullenbaum as Karen and Sam Nash the anniversary couple; Nora O'Dea directs Alan Stillman and Jennifer DeCook as Jesse Kiplinger and his high school sweetheart Muriel Tate; while Peter Zalizniak directs Tom Minion and Kathy Cooney as the hapless Hubley's Roy and Norma.
Rounding out the cast is Matt Nilsen as the Waiter; Mickennon Wilson as the Bellhop and as Borden Eisler; with Taylor Baker as Jeanne McCormick and as the Bride of the Plaza Mimsey.
