Plaza Suite – Tent Theatre

A suburban couple takes a suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before. A Hollywood producer thrice-married calls an old sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. A mother and father fight about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where wedding guests are gathered. Hilarity abounds in Neil Simon’s portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at NYC’s Plaza Hotel.


Plaza Suite is performed live, in-person, July 16-18 and July 29-Aug. 1, 2021, in the event tent in The Playhouse parking lot. There are no virtual options.

Plaza Suite is performed in repertory, alternating weeks, with Godspell. Godspell performances are July 9-11, July 22-25, & Aug. 5-8, 2021. Click here for more information on Godspell. The family show Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical is on the tent stage Saturday mornings, July 10, 17, 24, 31, & Aug. 7, 2021. Click here for more information Polkadots.
