Neil Simon’s California Suite

For their first performance, CMU’s University Theater Summer Program brings you Neil Simon’s California Suite – a quartet of four brilliantly comic vignettes about different visitors to Suite 203-204 of The Beverly Hills Hotel. The Visitor from New York introduces us to an urban workaholic who cannot abide the leisurely life-style her ex-husband has adopted in an effort to lure his daughter to the West Coast. The Visitor from Philadelphia is a middle-aged businessman who has awakened on his first morning in California to find a naked prostitute unconscious in his bed. The Visitors from London include an aging British actress who may win an Oscar, but who is in imminent danger of losing her husband. While The Visitors from Chicago are two couples who find their friendships disintegrating with each hour they vacation together.
