Inspired by celebrated playwright Neil Simon's own life, Broadway Bound follows a pair of aspiring comedy writer brothers as their parents' marriage dissolves. Odyssey Theatre Ensemble's production is directed by Jason Alexander (Seinfeld), who created the role of "Stanley" in the original Broadway production. The final entry in Simon's beloved Eugene trilogy, after Brighton Beach Memoirs and Biloxi Blues, Broadway Bound won two Tony Awards during its initial run and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Eugene and his older brother, Stanley, deal with the revelation of their father's infidelity by adapting their lives into thinly veiled radio skits, a move that starts them on the road to success, but contributes to the tension in their already-crumbling family. In Broadway Bound, Simon captures all the laughter and heartbreak of family life. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Inkwell TheaterThe Inkwell theater company is dedicated to producing new works that value the writer; a company where young artists and veterans alike can work in an environment of experimentation, support, and collaboration.
In the spring 2004, the company presented Only the Dead Know Burbank by Peter Lefcourt, followed by The Architect of Destiny by 25-year old Michael Gianakos; and Tango 'Til They're Sore, written and directed by 25-year-old Matthew Hancock. The company's fourth play, Sunset Park, by Marley Sims and Elliot Shoenman, ran for fourteen weeks and was published by Samuel French. Then came Michael Halperin's All Steps Necessary, which was based on a meeting called by Hermann Goering three days after the Kristallnacht pogrom. In 2007, Inkwell produced Moment in the Sun and in 2008 Old Glories. 2011 brought the Ovation-nominated production AfterMath, starring Annie Potts.
