Now Showing: "Suite Surrender"
It’s 1942, and two of Hollywood’s biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel—assistants,
luggage and a legendary feud with one another in tow. Everything seems
to be in order for their wartime performance...that is, until they are
somehow assigned to the same suite. Mistaken identities,
overblown egos, double entendres and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles round
out this hilarious riot of a love note to the classic farces of the ‘30s
and ‘40s.Performance dates are Feb. 27-March 1 and March 5-7, 2015, with a preview performance on Feb. 25. There will be a '20s, '30s and '40s costume contest during the Friday, Feb. 27 and March 6 performances. Learn more.
