Brighton Beach Memoirs

October 13-14 and 20-23

What could be more difficult than struggling through the end of the Great Depression, sharing your small home with your widowed aunt and her two daughters, and fighting to keep the family intact, all with the threat of war looming on the horizon? … Puberty! See the world through the pages of 14 year-old Eugene’s ‘Memoirs’ in Neil Simons’ heart-warming, thought-provoking, coming of age comedy and follow the trials of the Jerome family as they make the best of life in 1937 Brooklyn, when principles were questioned as luxuries in the challenges of a financial crisis. Sound familiar? Neil Simon is one of the world’s most successful playwrights and Brighton Beach Memoirs is one of his most successful plays. The original Broadway production ran for over 1300 performances, won numerous awards, and launched Matthew Broderick’s career. Join TheaterCNU for this American Classic.
