The Upstairs Concierge opens at Goodman Theatre March 28 — a satirical comedy that shines a spotlight on our fame-obsessed society. In a world of fame, fortune, and high-class hotels, Ella is finding out just how difficult it can be to juggle the demands of celebrity clients at her new job as an upstairs concierge. Fresh out of grad school, she is looking to get her feet wet at her glamorous new job. As Ella quickly learns, however, there is more to her new position than meets the eye. Balancing the needs of demanding guests, keeping track of the social hierarchy and managing to keep her head on straight is more of a challenge than she expected. Playwright Kristoffer Diaz cleverly explores issues of new media and instant celebrity while simultaneously delivering laugh-out-loud antics.
The Upstairs Concierge is set to run March 28 – April 26. Tickets cost $10 – 25, and can be purchased here.
