    This hilarious romp is a glimpse into the everyday goings-on in the lobby of a New York City hotel. The place is chock-full of intrigue and mix-ups created by the very colorful characters, including Santa Claus! Use from 4 to 14 actors in this fast-paced comedy. With four, they can perform all the roles with simple and quick costume changes and/or accessories. Or, they can pull accents out of their bag of theatrical tricks.

    The show also works well as readers theatre. Such fun!

    An Actors’ Equity Production was presented of In One Door! Out the Other! with four sold-out performances! It was chosen as the “Best of the Best” from the monthly Reading Series, Words & Wine. The fun-filled performances brought in full houses and audience members who happily gave standing ovations!
