Do you believe in ghosts? What if a room could tell you the life-stories of the people that have inhabited it? Better still – what if it could sing you those stories? In Room 29, Jarvis Cocker and Chilly Gonzales give a voice to those ghosts, using music, theatrics, clips from classic Hollywood movies and more to reveal the secrets of Room 29 of the Château Marmont hotel in Hollywood.
For the duration of one evening the entire audience will be occupants of Room 29. You will be greeted by the concierge and be given a key. Sit down, get comfortable – it will be their pleasure to serve up a night of entertainment like no other. Room 29 may be a real location in Hollywood, California – but it is also a place within each one of us. Through this collection of songs the show opens the door to that room for all those of you who wish to explore it. How’s that for Room Service?
