Loved it! Performances were great - funny, poignant. I think everyone can relate to this family and feel as if they're a part of it. The set really helped the show feel intimate. Go see it!

Description

Called “a mesmerizing journey” by the New York Times, Neil Simon’s endearing classic comedy _Broadway Bound _received seven Tony Award nominations and was nominated for a 1987 Pulitzer Prize for drama. Set in the late 1940s in Brighton Beach, New York, _Broadway Bound _is the story of two brothers, Eugene and Stanley Jerome, who are determined to break into show business as professional comedy writers. When the brothers use the trials and tribulations of their dysfunctional family as inspiration for a radio comedy skit, the Jerome clan may never be the same.

Broadway Bound is a hilarious, warm and poignant tribute to family and the ties that bind.
