BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRS  By Neil Simon

February 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22
Fri & Sat at 8:00 PM, Sun Mat at 2:00 PM
 
Here is part one of Neil Simon's autobiographical trilogy: a portrait of the writer as a young teen in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn walk-up.  Eugene Jerome, standing in for the author, is the narrator and central character.  Dreaming of baseball and girls,  Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley.  Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and Grandpa the Socialist and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style.  This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states "if you didn't have a problem, you wouldn't be living here."

"Brings a fresh glow to Broadway...In many respects his funniest, richest and consequently the most affecting of his plays." - New York Daily News   "Simultaneously poignant and funny. The characters are fully dimensional, believable...An outstanding show...the best seen on Broadway in too long a time." – Variety  "Hilarious comedy...His finest play...A delightful and enriching experience." - CBS-TV
 

LAUGHTER ON THE 23RD FLOOR

 by Neil Simon

 September 12th to September 27th
 
If there were any more laughs you'd have to come back again to hear them all.  Neil Simon has taken us back to relive his actual experiences as a writer on Sid Caesar's Show of Shows, a comedy-variety hour, Circa 1953. It's a joke factory that lets you in on the writing, fighting and wacky antics of these television pioneers and show business legends including Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Neil Simon, Woody Allen, and Larry Gelbart.
 
"Old style comedy; fast and furious."  --  The Wall Street Journal
 
"One of Simon's funniest…comedy,  comedy all the way."  -- -- Newsweek
