This tele-film was made and released about two years after its source play of the same name by Neil Simon was first performed in 1994. The premiere season of the play opened at the Seattle Repertory Theatre on 12th October 12 1994 running until 5th November that year. The original New York production opened off-Broadway at the Union Square Theatre on 28th March 1995 and ran for 169 performances until 3rd September 1995. The production was nominated for the 1995 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play. See more »
It's hard to believe this was written by the famous playwright we know and love. Not only does London Suite lack humor, it lacks intelligence. All of the characters are based in stupidity which makes their ensuing plot lines a yawn to watch. The only thing notable about this story is that something so boring and silly could come from the pen of one of our wittiest and most cosmopolitan writers. I suppose there is an audience somewhere that can find entertainment in watching people's ignorance dominate their behavior, but it's not my cup of tea. The real shame is that a talented and eclectic cast of comedic actors was assembled for this un-funny script and it is so very obvious that they are each working very hard to find the essence of their character. No doubt, in the end, they realized they didn't have anything to work with and their futility comes through loud and clear in their delivery and body language. Don't bother with this unless you want to see how even a great writer can go bad.
