News   Pittsburgh Public Will Premiere New Turn of 20th Century Comedy L'Hotel
 
The Pittsburgh Public Theater’s 40th anniversary 'Season of Legends' will present the world premiere of L’Hotel – written by Broadway veteran Ed Dixon and directed by Pittsburgh's producing artistic director Ted Pappas – to begin Nov. 13 at the O’Reilly Theater (621 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh, PA).

The production will run through Dec. 14.

Here's how the premiere is billed, "In Ed Dixon’s new comedy, six late greats have checked into a strange and wondrous Parisian hotel. Sarah Bernhardt and Jim Morrison bicker over breakfast while Oscar Wilde and Victor Hugo trade vicious barbs. As Isadora Duncan and Gioachino Rossini wage war over the Ouija board, one angelic waiter caters to their every whim. But their fondest desire is for reincarnation, which just might be possible through a young woman named Catherine. With gales of literate laughter, L’Hotel skewers celebrity culture and looks for the true definition of greatness."

The cast will feature Deanne Lorette, Daniel Hartley, Brent Harris, Sam Tsoutsouvas, Kati Brazda, Tony Triano, Evan Zes and Erika Cuenca.

The designers for L’Hotel are James Noone (scenic design), David C. Woolard (costume design), Kirk Bookman (lighting design) and Zach Moore (sound design).

L’Hotel’s production sponsor is DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Pittsburgh Downtown. Tickets begin at $23 for general admission, $15.75 for age 26 and under.
