Neil Simon, a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, is widely regarded as one of America’s funniest stage authors. Brighton Beach Memoirs, a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age story, has been called “his funniest, richest and consequently the most affecting of his plays” by the New York Daily News. It’s 1937 and 15-year old Eugene Morris Jerome lives with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn walk-up. 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 and her two young (but rapidly developing) daughters and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style.
