What’s the show about?
Fifteen-year-old Eugene Jerome is desperately trying to uncover life’s mysteries, but his family keeps hiding the clues. Even so, he manages to keep his priorities — baseball and girls — firmly in order throughout Neil Simon’s hilarious play about growing up in Brooklyn during the late 1930s. Life is definitely never dull with seven people living under the same roof. Dad works two jobs to make ends meet, older brother Stanley is eager to dispense sage advice, and Aunt Blanche tries to cope as a single parent. “Brighton Beach Memoirs” is a wonderful, semi-autobiographical comedy with heart, wit and hysterical insights into family life and grownup up – just a little off-center.
Good to know: This production is rated PG-13 for mature audiences and may not be suitable for younger audiences.
What else: The show is directed by James H. Williams with assistant director Fran Knapp. The dramatic comedy is by Neil Simon, and presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.
