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!


Scene Work

Two weeks before the show:
Megan Stogner, Thomas Hodges and Jon Wat rehearse their scenes before the first run-thru.
Notice that the floor is finished to look like a hotel lobby, and the bed is being built in one of the hotel rooms. 
Later this week, all the set pieces will be put in place, props will magically appear and tech will begin.
