Lobby Hero

The Elite Theatre is proud to announce its upcoming production of Lobby Hero – a play by Kenneth Lonergan, directed by Cate Caplin, running for five weekends on the Main Stage from July 8, 2022 to August 7, 2022.


When Jeff, a luckless young security guard, is drawn into a local murder investigation, loyalties are strained to the breaking point. As Jeff’s tightly wound supervisor is called to bear witness against his troubled brother, and an attractive rookie cop finds she must stand up to her seasoned partner, truth becomes elusive and justice proves costly.
