A musical introduction sets the stage as narrator Kevin T. Collins transforms the dreary, tired Warren Hotel into a site of animated and magical chaos. Twelve-year-old Warren, who practically runs his family’s business, must whip both the hotel and its high-maintenance staff into shape for the sudden arrival of peculiar guests. Collins savors his performance with long, drawn-out sounds that create a mood of mystery. Warren’s cheery, sometimes blustery uncle is vocally contrasted with his witchy and aptly named Aunt Annaconda, who has a cutthroat obsession with finding the “all-seeing eye.” Pitch and volume changes that capture the characters’ perilous predicaments as well as Aunt Annaconda’s devilish cackles are highlights of Collins’s delightful performance.
