Final Weekend of ‘California Suite’ at The Company


Directed By Lou Scarpati

Starring:  Donna Avery, Thomas Dane, Larry Kadish, Larissa Lamont, Andrea Prendamano, James Van Nostrand

A humorous confection divided into four parts:

In Visitor from New York, Hannah, a magazine writer, is joined by her ex-husband, the question being with whom should their daughter spend the next six months? The banter flies fast and furious, but Hannah's well-wrought artifice crumbles as her fears take hold.

The Visitor from Philadelphia is a wife who arrives at the suite, catching her husband "en flagrante delicto" with a drunken hooker.

Visitors from London Academy Award nominee Diana returns from the ceremony empty-handed to her husband, Sidney, whose homosexuality will be no comfort tonight.

The Visitors from Chicago are two couples ending a disastrous vacation they should not have shared.

Neil Simon at his most humane, compassionate best.

Tickets are still available for the final three performances.  Fri & Sat at 8pm.  Sun at 3:30pm.  39 Broadway, Hackensack, NJ.   Details and tickets:

"For those of us who imagine Los Angeles as nothing but a long street in a desperate search of a parking lot, Neil Simon's California Suite [...] will come as a vast relief [...] Mr. Simon is writing at his ebullient best [...] his language has the grace of conversation we wish our friends could muster [...] makes us laugh so effortlessly." – The New York Times

"The incisiveness of his wit is driven by an insight into everyday humans and the cultures from which their habits are derived." – Chicago Theatre Beat
