Photo Flash: First Look at Northlight's LOST IN YONKERS, Opening Tonight

Northlight Theatre, under the direction of Artistic Director BJ Jones and Executive Director Timothy J. Evans, presents Lost in Yonkers by Neil Simon, directed by Devon de Mayo. The production will run at Northlight Theatre, 9501 Skokie Blvd in Skokie through June 8, 2014, with an opening night set for tonight, May 9, at 7:30 pm. Check out a first look below!

This nostalgic memory play takes us back to the summer of 1942 - WWII is on, and Eddie, flat broke, has no alternative but to leave his sons with their grandmother while he struggles to pay off his debts. The boys are left to contend with an ill-tempered Grandma, the sweet but damaged Aunt Bella, and Uncle Louis, a small-time hoodlum in a strange new world called Yonkers.

Artistic Director BJ Jones comments, "In keeping with our tradition of matching fresh young talent with American Classics, we are thrilled to welcome Devon de Mayo as director of the Pulitzer Prize winning Lost in Yonkers."

The cast of Lost in Yonkers includes Anne Fogarty (Gert), Erik Hellman (Louie), Timothy Edward Kane (Eddie), Linsey Page Morton (Bella), Alistair Sewell (Jay), Sebastian W. Weigman (Arty) and Ann Whitney (Grandma Kurnitz).

The creative team includes Grant Sabin (scenic), Rachel Lartiz (costumes), Lee Keenan (lighting), Nick Keenan (sound), Sarah Burnham (props) and Eva Breneman (dialect coach). Rita Vreeland is the stage manager.
