The creators hope the audience will learn about how large corporations and businesses work through this piece. They want people to imagine how seemingly ordinary lives may be more complex than they seem.
By her own admission, Lady Rizo exists in the land of diva, knocking them dead in her Marchesa gowns and singing a repertory that runs from American Songbook classics to contemporary pop.

With her hypnotic lilt and ethereal spirit, Plummer's performance is, without question, one of the finest of the year.
Bay State Banner: American Rep’s star-studded cast ruminates on life, atonement in ‘Night of the Iguana’ (March 2, 2017)
“Night of the Iguana” presents the scariest of all truths: that the most atonement, the most suffering, comes not from death, but from life.
