“Upstairs/Downstairs at the Tampa Bay Hotel” with Otis Freedman

Step back in time and a single-character performance that brings turn-of-the-century Tampa Bay Hotel staff members and guests to life. Based on original research conducted by the Henry Plant Museum, “Upstairs/Downstairs at the Tampa Bay Hotel” recreates the attitudes and mores of a bygone time. In this presentation of “Upstairs/Downstairs at the Tampa Bay Hotel” hosted by Curator of Education for the Henry Plant Museum Heather Brown, we meet head waiter Otis Freedman portrayed by Josh Goff. Special thanks to the Arts Council of Hillsborough County​ and Hillsborough County, Florida Government​ Board of County Commissioners for underwriting this project.
