Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza Hotel. A suburban couple takes a suite while their house is being painted, a Hollywood producer calls a childhood sweetheart for a little sexual diversion, and a mother and father fight about the best way to get their daughter, the bride, out of the bathroom and back to the wedding.
Why we think it's Essential: With snappy dialogue and laugh-out-loud moments, Neil Simon's classic stage play is one of many great audio productions by reknowned troupe L.A Theatre Works. Ed Asner is pitch perfect playing a hothead father on the day of his daughter's wedding; JoBeth Williams his equal in dual roles as jilted wife and nervous mother-in-law to be. I've seen this play before in the theatre and on film, but this audio production trumps them both. Corey Thrasher
"Another winner." (The London Standard)
"All three are remorselessly anti-romantic love stories: outrageously funny, wincingly cruel." (The London Times)

I wish I could see the original play
Maybe, it's worth it but know the story so well having seen the movie.
The comedy actually comes off better in this audio than in the movie version. You can sense Neil Simon better.
No, but this has an all star cast. You recognize each voice.
I did. It's not long at all. Like watching a movie.
Really enjoyed it.
