Liked it +. Great venue, and excellent acting. This was the first time we had been to this venue and were greatly pleased. The actors who play Arty and Bella were fantastic.

More Information



Like many of Simon’s plays, Lost In Yonkers is drawn from his experiences growing up in New York City. Many critics consider this play to be Simon’s best work and the pinnacle of his career. Set during World War II, Arty and Jay are sent to live with their frightfully intimidating Grandma and sweet but mentally slow Aunt Bella. This masterwork is an unsentimental examination of lives in an oppressive household, climaxing with a dramatic confrontation between the bitter mother and lonely daughter. This is Neil Simon at his very best!

Star Kevin Weisman (Louie) is recognized around the world for his work as Marshall Flinkman on the ABC series Alias. He received a BA from UCLA’s Theatre/Film/Television and studied at New York’s Circle in the Square Theatre.

A founding member of the award-winning Buffalo Nights Theatre Company, Kevin’s stage credits include the starring role in Crazy Drunk at the John Anson Ford Theatre, the title role in Arthur Schnitzler’s Anatol, the West Coast premiere of Jonathon Marc Sherman’s Sophistry, Apollo of Bellac, J.B, Suburban Motel and Incident at Vichy. Other theatre credits include Tis Pity She’s a Whore, The Greeks, and The Goldoni Trilogy at the Mark Taper.

Additional TV credits include CSI: NY, Numbers, The X-Files, Chuck, October Road, Moonlight, Ghost Whisperer, Felicity, Roswell, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Frasier, Just Shoot Me and E.R.

Weisman produced and acted in the 2006 release, Illusion, starring screen legend Kirk Douglas and fellow Buffalo Nights member and Emmy Award winner, Michael Goorjian, who also directed.

Other film work includes Disney’s recently released Space Buddies, Kevin Smith’s Clerks II, B.O.H.I.C.A., (Winner of Special Jury Award at the WorldFest-Houston Intl. Film Festival and Audience Award at the Newport Intl. Film Festival), and the 1998 Slamdance Audience Award winner, Man Of The Century.
