The play was different than the other times I've seen the show in other venues.
The cast did a good job and projected well. The young boy's voice sometimes got lost but not enough to obstruct the play.The cast melded into their respective roles so they were absolutely believable.
I enjoyed the show thoroughly but my husband was not as impressed. Of course, he isn't from Yonkers nor did he have an aunt and uncle who owned a candy/ ice cream store on South Broadway in the 1940's as I did. I remember it well. I don't remember such dysfunction but it probably was there. Memories.
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!
