Ella Elizondo’s whole life has built up to this moment: her first day as Upstairs Concierge in a chic new Chicago hotel. She'll soon learn that catering to celebrity guests isn't all it's cracked up to be. An old school farce for a new generation.

The Upstairs Concierge is a co-commission between Goodman Theatre and Teatro Vista.

This reading is closed to the public.

The Bake-Off is a tool to help writers write a first draft quickly. Some folks have called it a method for getting out of your own way. Paula Vogel's Bake-Offs are famous for their design and ingredients... and, of course, for bringing forth many exceptional and beautiful plays.
