Plaza Suite is a winner!
There are laughs.
There is some drama (with clever and humorous dialogue – after all, this is Neil Simon, folks).
Pat Hoppe, who is such a good actress (her performance as Ethel in Golden Pond was stunning), may have found her second (or third? or fourth?) career in directing. It was a most impressive production.
All of the actors gave great performances.
I had no idea that our sedate Judge Frank Follis was such a rascal; Jack Baker gave a sterling performance; I couldn’t take my eyes away from Jan Baker’s hilarious/sad role as Karen Nash; Travis Cox was a very convincing rogue!; Audrey Parker’s performance was excellent (she was sedate, flirty, and a bit ‘sloshed,’ all while staying in character as Muriel); Amy Pawelek never ceases to amaze – she can play any role. The young actors: Devon Birdsong, Shara Pierce, and Billy Roy were perfect!
Assistant Director Linda Duncan added her expertise and was welcoming to all who attended the first night performance. [I could probably attend every performance and be delighted with this play.]
For a most enjoyable evening – go to Plaza Suite. And the traveling distance isn’t as far as New York! It’s right here – in Seguin City!
