      L.A Theatre Works brings Neil Simon s Plaza Suite to life The play, first produced in 1968, follows three different encounters in Suite 719 of New York City s Plaza Hotel the anniversary celebration of a long married couple from Mamaroneck, the reunion of a Hollywood producer with his former high school sweetheart now a married mother of three still in their hometown of Tenafly, N.J , and the beleaguered parents of a bride who has locked herself in the bathroom and refuses to be married Plaza Su [...]

      sandyi Among the many classic plays I ve read and loved, Oscar Wilde s The Importance of Being Earnest would probably rank right up there as the best It s easily one of the most hilarious and well crafted plays that leaves you in absolute raptures But I also remember being particularly partial to another play by a writer I had not heard of before Neil Simon His collection of plays, called A Visitor From Forest Hills was part of the recommended text in college and I remember reading the first pla [...]

    7. Shayda Salarvand says:

      I gave it four stars exclusively for the very last act absolutely hilarious It s a must read comedy.

    8. Kathy Worrellツ says:

      What a great dramatized audiobook There are three short, separate plays about what happens in room 719 of The Plaza Hotel in NYC Story 1 is about a married couple celebrating their anniversary I found this to be very sad in so many ways Story 2 A married woman meets her high school sweetheart after being apart for 17 years I really enjoyed this one Story 3 A young girl is crying in the bathroom of her wedding day Her parents are outside the door trying to get her to come out My least favorite st [...]

      3.5 stars, actually I love Neil Simon, the substantive joy, and quick clip of his plays I am endeared by the mid century shtick I was drawn to this while battling the blues, and it was good company Act I is the best one, which gives this play a teetering feel about it.

    10. Steven says:

      Biting and potent dark comedy Simon s dialog accurately captures the undertones and breakdowns in 3 relationships.

    11. Laura says:

      You know, as Neil Simon goes, I was surprised that this play takes a pretty dark view of marriage It s nothing earth shattering, but enjoyable.

    12. Scott Vandrick says:

      The hit of the 1967 68 Broadway season, Plaza Suite is comprised of three short plays each set in suite 719 at the Plaza Hotel in New York Surprisingly serious, each act explores marriage stumbles and the bumbling of human folly The last act, Visitor for Forest Hills , set the New York theater scene laughing with parents trying desperately to get their daughter out of the bathroom and married before it s too late Simon s dialogue crackles with naturalistic wit, his situations ripe for comedic ac [...]

    13. Julian Munds says:

      This is an anthology play with three disparate one acts All of them work on their own but we re not startling in any way The characters all feel cold manly because they brushed with broad strokes The middle one strikes me close to home as I had an encounter much like it I m sure it s entertaining to watch But there s nothing startling here.

    14. Brian McCann says:

      Classic Simon that reads dated today Must have been a tour de force to watch George c Scott and Maureen Stapleton chew up the scenery

    15. Paul LaFontaine says:

      This is three vignettes and I really enjoyed one of the three The first two were rather dark and not comedies at all The last one was great.

    16. Lindsay says:

      This is not one of my favorite Neil Simon plays The play is divided into different time periods that center around different people all sharing the same hotel suite The idea is fascinating I just don t care for the stories Simon chooses The first is about a couple whose marriage is in trouble This particular story line was serious than I generally see Simon something I found refreshing The second is about a married woman who has come to visit a famous ex boyfriend at his hotel Not very interest [...]

    17. Jennifer (Sad Books Say So Much) says:

      This three act play or series of playlets is thought to be a comedy I consider it a tragedy.In each act or playlet, the characters have been going about their business, living lives of quiet desperation, until a central event which occurs during their stay at the Plaza Hotel in New York City blows their world right open and reveals to them how pathetic they truly are The difference between their aspirations and their reality is too stark to be ignored.I d be curious to know if anyone who has see [...]

    18. CMG (Mac) says:

      Can t really call this a book Three vignettes from different hotel guests at different times in the same hotel suite in the plaza Short entertaining and the actors did a good job of using their voices, pace, inflections to make the scenes seem realistic Synopsis 1 Lady books to celebrate her 24th anniversary with her overworked husband2 Childhood sweethearts reconnect when the man comes to town for business The woman has stayed in their hometown and is a typical married mom and the man has becom [...]

      I first read Neil Simon for Forensics in high school Holla, dorks out there Wut wut and I haven t read him since then I picked this up for a project I m working on and was immediately struck by Simon s timelessness Seriously, the details of these three mini plays within one large play may be dated but the emotions and the relationships are spot on I found myself imagining what it would be like to tweak these plays to represent our current technology and had little trouble imagining every one of [...]

    20. Steve Hersh says:

      This is really a series of three, one act plays set in the same suite in the Plaza Hotel in New York City This is inspired, comedic play writing here The first act features a couple celebrating their 25th or is it 24th anniversary In the second, a Hollywood producer catches up with an old high school girlfriend In the third and best of the bunch, a bride to be has locked herself in the bathroom of the suite as her parents work together but really, against each other to get her down to the ceremo [...]

    21. Pinky says:

      Three separate stories that take place in Room 719 at the Plaza The first story, of a bickering couple on the eve or eve eve of their 23 or 24 wedding anniversary was extremely tense The next two stories, about a Hollywood producer who meets up with his hometown high school sweetheart and parents trying to coax their daughter out of a locked bathroom on her wedding day were hysterical Nobody does bickering hilarity like Neil Simon.

    23. Melody says:

      I marked this with 3 stars but I am not sure It is probably like 2.5 I listened to the audible dramatization version I guess I get tired of people yelling at each other For this, only Act Two did not have the yelling.

    24. Jaime Contreras says:

      I failed to find the humor in a play about adultery and a lack of remorse for the act There are some poignant moments as two adulterous people share weekends of sex and talk over decades This was definitely not a pleasure to read.

    25. Jessica says:

      Great play

    26. Boni says:

      Plaza Suite is Neil Simon s comedy about three stories all happening in Suite 719 of Plaza Hotel in New York City The third story is hilarious, but first two acts are medium fare.

    27. Daniel Ziegelbauer says:

      A fun little romp in the typical style of Simon The three separate stories makes a voyeur out of the reader and ends in an enjoyable but unspectacular conclusion.
