A Comedy by NEIL SIMON


BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRS is one of Neil Simon’s most widely respected plays, winning the New York Drama Critics Prize for Best Play.  It debuted on Broadway on March  27, 1983, at the Alvin Theatre and earned Tony Awards for both the director Gene Saks and the star Matthew Broderick.  Though not strictly autobiographical, Simon based the play on his memories of growing up in New York City in the years just before World War II.  Two more plays featuring protagonist Eugene Jerome and his family would follow; 1985’s Biloxi Blues and 1986’s Broadway Bound.
