On Stage


LOST IN YONKERS 


October 21–November 29, 2009  
By Neil Simon 
Directed by Jerry Whiddon

In a remarkable coming-of-age story that won 4 Tony Awards and a Pulitzer Prize, two brothers are left to fend for themselves in a dysfunctional household with their formidable immigrant grandmother, sweet but simple-minded aunt and a hoodlum of an uncle. This classic American tale is simultaneously comic and poignant.
