Brighton Beach Memoirs
By Neil Simon
Directed by Tim Bair
Meet Eugene Jerome and his family; fighting the hard times and sometimes each other
There’s holes in his shoes, war on the horizon and liver for dinner, but 15-year-old Eugene Jerome would rather think about the Yankees. And girls. Surrounded by his overworked mother and father, his wayward brother and a whole houseful of relatives, Eugene navigates the minefield of adolescence in Neil Simon’s semi-autobiographical play. A heartfelt love letter to his own Jewish childhood, Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs reminds us that family is the one constant in the crazy journey of life.
