The play proved very popular with audiences and was extended twice.\n</p><p>Adapted and directed by Annie Lareau, the director of touring and outreach at Book-It, <i>Hotel</i> was made with the blessing of author Jamie Ford and featured a large, mostly Asian American cast. The play starred Jose Aboag and Stephanie Kim as the young Henry and Keiko and Stan Asis as the older Henry. The play premiered on September 18, 2012.\n</p><p>Reviews of the play were almost uniformly positive, with the young leads and the design and costuming often being singled out for praise. Several reviewers did note that the play, at nearly three hours, was too long and included too many short scenes.<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">[1]</a></sup>\n</p><p>Founded in 1987, the Book-It is a nonprofit theater in Seattle that specializes in adapting both classic and contemporary literary works for the stage.
