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
