Paradise Hotel

Paradise Hotel is a translation into English of the French farce L'Hotel du Libre Echange by Georges Feydeau. The story centers around a middle-aged man, Benoit Pinglet, who after 20 years of marriage, arranges a rendez-vous with the beautiful young wife of his business partner and best friend, Henri Paillardin. Alas, sexual infidelity is a tough secret to keep, as Pinglet finds out at the Paradise Hotel in this hysterical, door-slamming, narrowly-escaping-getting-caught comedy of errors. At SDSU's Don Powell Theatre Nov. 19 to Dec. 5. Don't miss it!


Rehearsal Photos: Three Weeks Out

The crew clears the stage so rehearsal can begin. The floor is covered in black paper and tape because it is being painted by the set crew. Many of the large set pieces have been built and are leaning against the wall.

Director Peter Larlham talks the the cast before rehearsal.

Ladies rehearse in corsets and skirts, and men wear hard-soled shoes, to get a feel for their costumes. Notice the "wallpapered" wall of the hotel room on the house right side of the photo -- evidence that the crew has been hard at work building the set.
