Quotes & Highlights
“Young director Devon de Mayo is making an auspicious Northlight debut with a beautifully cast and toned production, carefully focused on characters in pain but nonetheless funny throughout.” -Chicago Tribune (four stars)
“Devon de Mayo and her cast have created a gorgeous revival of “Lost in Yonkers,” Simon’s 1991 Pulitzer Prize-winning play. I bet few who make the effort will emerge from that theater unchanged by the experience in some profound way. Yes, Simon has written a traditionally structured play about a family in distress. But it is a great beauty of a work that, on the edge of a dime, masterfully turns from the tragic to the comic in human nature while capturing all the absurdity that lies in between. Simon also brilliantly limns characters from three generations whose lives leave an indelible imprint on each other, and on us.” -Chicago Sun-Times (highly recommended)
