Quotes & Highlights

“The best play Simon ever wrote.”  —_New York Post _
“Laughter and tears have come together in a new emotional truth. There are moments in this play when you experience a new kind of laughter for Simon, a silent laughter that doesn’t explode into a yuk but implodes straight into your heart.”  —Newsweek
“One of Simon’s most impressive and funniest plays.”  —New York Daily News


What happens to children in the absence of love? That question lies at the heart of this funny and heartrending play by one of America’s most acclaimed and beloved playwrights. Winner of four Tony Awards, including Best Play, and the Pulitzer Prize, Lost In Yonkers — the final production of the season on the Main Stage at Las Vegas Little Theatre — is Neil Simon’s moving comedy/drama about the cruelties and painful memories that scar a family.

It is New York, 1942. After the death of their mother, two young brothers are sent to stay with their formidable grandmother for the longest ten months of their lives. Grandmother Kurnitz is a one-woman German front — a refugee and a widow who has steeled her heart against the world. Her coldness and intolerance have crippled her own children: the boys’ father has no self-esteem; their Aunt Gert has an embarrassing speech impediment; their Uncle Louie is a small-time gangster; and their Aunt Bella has the mentality of a child. But it is Bella’s hunger for affection and her refusal to be denied love that saves the boys.

The cast of Lost In Yonkers features Gail Romero as “Grandma Kurnitz”; Marlena Shapiro as “Bella”; David Elliott as “Eddie”; Harvey Blanc as “Louie”; Gillen Brey as “Gert”; Jason Nino as “Jay”; and, making his theatrical debut, 12-year-old Enrique Corn as “Arty.” Directing this powerful production is Brian Scott.
