Review I was tired and in a sour mood when I entered the State Theatre for opening night of the Placer Community Theater’s “Suite Surrender.” I’ve seen this company put on some outstanding shows in the past, but I had a bad feeling about this one. I guess I didn’t like the way it started or I questioned some of the casting – whatever. And I decided quickly that it wouldn’t be worth writing a review. But they began to win me over, and soon I found myself laughing along with the rest of the audience. The bottom line is that this is a truly funny show – with escalating conflicts, confusion, and surprises. Guided by director Ely Wilbur, the whole cast played the comic situations beautifully. But the highlight for me was the brilliant acting of veteran performer, Fred Burks, as the hotel manager. I left the theater refreshed and energized from a good dose of laughter therapy.
