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

The program mentioned that the play was by the best Polish writer, one of his popular, recognized plays, and that the writer had been nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature. I sat in stunned disbelief throughout the play, so did most of the audience. What I saw did not reflect the positive description at all. These were disjointed scenes of two young girls trying to find out what sex was all about, reading descriptions in a book, having dreams and nightmares, interrupted by scenes of lustful men chasing after anything in skirts, confessions of a wife who hated the physical demands of her husband, of a grandfather who still was plagued by his physical desires, descriptions of his perversions perpetrated upon his granddaughter. I can't believe that this poor excuse for a play was entirely the author's fault. More likely the problem was the direction. This is the third really bad play I have seen at the Odyssey within the last few months.
