Brighton Beach Memoirs
Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater


By Neil Simon

Directed by Matt Torney

April 5 — May 7, 2017

Coming of age is never easy—but it sure can be hilarious. Eugene Morris Jerome is 15, lives in Brooklyn, and thinks of little else but playing for the Yankees… and girls, of course. But he’s more likely to become a short story writer than a short stop. Eugene’s witty commentary about his life, his overworked father, his overbearing mother, his overconfident brother, and his overly gorgeous cousin, makes this tender journey through puberty both poignant and joyful.

Simon’s “funniest, richest and consequently the most affecting of his plays.” New York Daily News
