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

saw it on preview night, a couple of missed cues and lighting that needs improvement. however, the play itself is smartly written and refreshing. great acting by all, conversations had an easy natural flow - didn't feel contrived or preachy. characters were endearing. my friend and I were among the few younger audience members yet we related to the stories and the journeys. it provided mature and emotionally intelligent insight to middle age. we recommend the show : )

Growing older doesn’t always mean growing wiser. Harriet (Jane Kaczmarek) is a widow and single mother; Nina (Diane Cary) has left her actor husband to escape the shadow of his celebrity; and twice-divorced Meg (Sharon Sharth) has been navigating the single world for ten years. These women, and the men in their lives, take a journey of self-discovery, stopping along the way to examine the gray areas of marriage and divorce, want and need, sexual ambiguity and dating in the age of online matchmaking.
Running time is 90 minutes.
