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
 

JAR THE FLOOR

By Cheryl L. West


April 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19

A quartet of black women spanning four generations makes up this heartwarming dramatic comedy. The four, plus the white woman friend of the youngest, come together to celebrate the matriarch's ninetieth birthday. It's a wild party, one that is a lovable lunatic glance at the exhilarating challenge of growing old amidst the exasperating trials of growing up.

"…a moving and hilarious account of a black family sparring in a Chicago suburb…" —NY Magazine. "…heart-to-heart confrontations and surprising revelations…first-rate…" —NY Daily News. "…wise and funny…an immensely gratifying evening of theater." —NY Law Journal. "…one of the wisest plays I've seen in ages…[from] a master playwright." —USA Today. "A fresh, spirited evening—genuinely moving." —Washington Post.
