Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Neil Simon follows the fish-out-of-water adventures of 20-year-old Eugene Jerome, the naive and lovable Brooklyn kid from Brighton Beach Memoirs, as he arrives in Biloxi, Mississippi for basic training in 1943. That's where he encounters an odd and eclectic group of fellow recruits -- not to mention a sadistic drill sergeant -- and has his first tentative experiences with love. Now in its 10th anniversary season, Repertory East Playhouse stages the show that starred Matthew Broderick in both its Tony-winning Broadway run and the 1988 film adaptation. Learn More

This was a very intense play. Unimaginable amount of dialoge that had to be memorized by the actors. They did a fine job with the material. Though it was supposed to be happening in LA it has a more New York vibe about it. At least one of the actors has a strong New York accent--not sure if it was his own or was part of the direction. I enjoy live theater and am appreciative that my city has a theatre group who put out provocative and entertaining works.
<p>HurlyBurly is a riveting dark comedy which chronicles the non-events in the lives of a group of fast talking, narcissistic, L.A. based professionals, nose deep in the decadent, perverted, cocaine laden culture that is Hollywood. We follow the characters, who can't seem to slow down long enough to breathe, let alone make sense of their lives, as they pursue their sex crazed, dope ridden vision of the American Dream.</p> <p>The Off-Broadway production, directed by Mike Nichols and starring William Hurt, Sigourney Weaver, Judith Ivey, Christopher Walken, Harvey Keitel and Jerry Stiller, received high praise.</p>
