Why did LTA decide to produce Neil Simon's "Plaza Suite?"
LTA has produced a number of Neil Simon's comedies but it has been quite a while since he graced our stage. It was time. I chose to produce this show because I have worked with Shawn g. Byers a couple of times - with us in different roles - and when I learned that he was directing Plaza Suite I jumped at the chance to produce for him. He is such a talented, positive, fun person that I knew we would have a good time creating Plaza Suite together. I was really lucky when Jamie Blake decided to co-produce with me. We have known each other for years and have worked together on many shows but this is the first time we have produced together. I think we make a great team.
What do you hope audiences will take away from this play?
I hope the audience has a good time laughing at the all the wonderful humor that Neil Simon has infused into Plaza Suite and that on their way home they say - "What a great evening!"
