Zürich is receiving such good reviews. It is really exciting seeing Paul on this journey with his career! Only one more week to see this play – click here for ticket information.
A Swiss hotel room is the set of Amelia Roper’s ingeniously engineered play. Or, rather, hotel rooms: each scene takes place in a different, albeit identical-looking, home away from home. It quickly emerges that these scenes, which feel like self-contained playlets, are happening at the same time. (Sound cues turn into sound clues.) It’s an ambitious concept, and this Colt Coeur production, directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, does it justice, with the audience separated from the stage by a glass partition representing the room’s windows. Taken individually, the parts tend to meander needlessly, having apparently opted for the late-checkout option, and the payoff is far-fetched. Still, the whole clicks into place, helped by the excellent ensemble cast; Paul Wesley and Juliana Canfield are especially good in the very funny first scene, as a couple the morning after a one-night tryst.
