Comedy / 7m, 5f (performed on Broadway with 3m, 2f) / Scenery: InteriorHilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza. A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being paintedandit turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before and was yesterday the anniversary, or is it today? This wry tale of marriage in tatters is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. Over the years she has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where guests await her or as Mother yells, I want you to come out of that bathroom and get married! Wonderfully funny...The blockbuster (3rd playlet) is the wildest and most uproarious farce I have seen on a stage.-New York Daily News Set the town laughing.-The New York Times A wonderfully happy and gratifying evening of sheer entertainment... Richly funny. -New York Post

Review: Plaza Suite

User Review  - Boni - Goodreads

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. Read full review

Review: Plaza Suite

User Review  - Melody - Goodreads

I marked this with 3 stars -- but I am not sure. It is probably more 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. Read full review
