A Farce of Hollywood

THE STORY: Set in a fictional, uber-chic bungalow hotel on the shores of Malibu in the time just before Facebook and the iPhone, this bedroom farce concerns the Hollywood agent-sharks Andrea and Adrian, who plot to poach Zeke Tadlow, the biggest movie star in the world, from the head of their agency and boss, Walter, to form an agency of their own, all while having a scandalous affair with each other.
“HOTEL BUZZ is that rare thing in the theatre: a laugh-out-loud, gloriously smart, and profane bedroom farce. It skewers Hollywood with an authenticity that can only come from one who has lived and worked there. A brilliant addition to the DPS library.” —Kevin McCollum, producer of Rent, Avenue Q, In The Heights, Motown The Musical, Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story, and Six.

“I had the great privilege of playing ‘Andrea’ in several readings of HOTEL BUZZ and they were some of the most fun I’ve ever had...HOTEL BUZZ has all the elements of a comedy classic like Noises Off, from near-misses and slamming doors, to spilled secrets and intriguing, hilariously-terrible relationships. Each character in this play is a gift for the actor who gets to play it…audiences were swept up by the wit and pace of David Goldsmith’s writing…This play is a gem.” —Yeardley Smith, actress and voice of “Lisa Simpson."
