Welcome to the Hotel Colors. Yes, it may be a hostel of shit. But the price is good. And there is love, philosophy and games of "ever ever have I never." Six unlikely travelers converge and form a fleeting community as they fail, and flail, to communicate. With original songs.
The Hotel Colors will have its world premiere at the The Bushwick Starr this spring season, May 8 to May 25, 2013.
The Hotel Colors Team
Written by Eliza Bent; Directed by Anna Brenner; Produced by Regina Vorria; Dramaturg/Associate Producer Sarah Rose Leonard; Set Design by Blanca Añón; Costume Design by Ásta Hostetter; Lighting Design by Yi Zhao; Sound Design by Kenneth Goodwin.
Starring Christine Holt, Alessandro Magania, Linda Mancini, Federico Rodriguez, Kourtney Rutherford, Howard Thoresen.
"Bent has the makings of a great comedienne...” – Matthew Clayfield, RealTime Arts
“For those who have gotten on Bent’s bandwagon, you’ll have plenty of other chances to enjoy her coltish chic…." – Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

Risks and challenges
This is Eliza Bent's Off-Off-Broadway playwriting debut and we want to make it as beautiful, professional and entertaining as possible.
We believe in paying our team and providing our designers with budgets that allow them to fully realize the world of this play.
The only challenge we face today is the capital needed to self produce a play. With your help, that challenge can easily be overcome.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
