BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRS
Thu Oct 10, 2013 - Sun Oct 27, 2013
By Neil Simon.
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 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 captured 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.”
“In many respects his funniest, richest and consequently the 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
