Why did LTA decide to produce Neil Simon's "Plaza Suite?"
LTA has a formula for the type of shows it does each season and this falls into the traditional comedy slot. LTA does Neil Simon very well and our audiences love his shows. Personally, I chose this show because of the director, Shawn g. Byers and the co-producer, Jennifer Lyman. I was asked to co-produce with Jennifer and I gladly accepted. She is organized and fun to work with. As a team we complement each other very well.
What do you hope audiences will take away from this play?
They see themselves in one of the characters and are able to laugh. All three acts are different and fun in their own way. The key is the choosing the right actors and our director has done that. I hope audiences walk away talking about how much they enjoyed the show and then tell their friends to get tickets as it will sell out quickly.
