BWW Review: BROADWAY BOUND Rounds Out Neil Simon's Eugene Trilogy at Theatre PalisadesBWW Review: BROADWAY BOUND Rounds Out Neil Simon's Eugene Trilogy at Theatre Palisades
by Shari Barrett - Sep 22, 2015

BROADWAY BOUND won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, making part three the most serious of the Eugene trilogy plays in which we find Eugene and his older brother Stanley trying to break into the world of show business in 1949 as professional comedy writers while coping with their parents break-up and eventual divorce. Along the way, their material is broadcast on the radio for the first time, making the family upset to hear a thinly-veiled portrait of themselves played for laughs. Of course everyone else in their Brighton Beach neighborhood sees themselves in the characters, but that does lessen the hurt felt by their grandfather and parents when the show airs. (more...)

BWW Review: From One Sandy Shore to Another, Neil Simon's Journey Triumphs at APABWW Review: From One Sandy Shore to Another, Neil Simon's Journey Triumphs at APA
by Kristen Morale - Aug 31, 2015

Imagine that you are a fifteen year old living in the midst of the Great Depression, living in tight quarters with both your immediate family and a few relatives, with every dollar earned considered precious and vital to getting through each passing day. If this were the case for any of us, it would be difficult to think of anything else except the awful plight that fate seems to have bestowed upon a rather undeserving group of people - a plight that involves all those who are merely trying to survive. Having this as a reality for anyone would be disheartening enough, but watching such a story unfold on stage in the Academy of Performing Arts' production of Neil Simon's Brighton Beach Memoirs is fascinating, as Simon's fairly autobiographical story does not only revolve around the immediate difficulties of the escalating war in Europe and America's current financial situation, but the narrative does a wonderfully heart-wrenching job of making the story of one Brooklyn family so personal. Each member of the family faces his or her own issues, some immediate and some brewing for years, but with each problem is the family ultimately brought together; the journey it collectively takes to get there is what makes this first installment of Simon's trilogy so riveting to watch.

BWW Review: Ho!, What a Show!BWW Review: Ho!, What a Show!
by Kristen Morale - Aug 22, 2015

Directed by Mary O'Brady, who really did a splendid job with this production, Neil Simon's Biloxi Blues is a tour-de-force of the lives of complete strangers, brought together for basic training and all to late realizing that their perception of what awaits them in the Army was rather askew. O'Brady wrote something beautiful about the basic concept of wartime, but the implications found in this statement are truly astounding and give a firm basis as to what Simon's show is truly about. She states "Ordinary people were asked to do extraordinary things…They were asked to save the world [and] they did." It is so ironic how war is indicative of death, destruction and all that people don't necessarily wish to think of, but the amount of personal growth that occurs when someone delves into the lives of those involved is truly astounding and honestly, quite riveting (more...)

BWW Reviews: Monomoy's SPELLING BEE Spells Success!BWW Reviews: Monomoy's SPELLING BEE Spells Success!
by Kristen Morale - Aug 10, 2015

What would happen if one were to switch the first few letters of "amazing" to form a new, exciting word that only certain minds could quickly figure out? Actually, who cares! As long as each of you knows the word's definition and what it implies, there can only be synonyms of the word used to describe Monomoy Theatre's current production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Having never before seen a production of this rather well-known comedy of a musical, letting Monomoy give me a very impressive and lasting first impression was a wonderful was an absolute privilege; I didn't expect anything less from the group, as the amount of talent on stage makes every play and musical performed wonderful, to say the least. Spelling Bee is really something quite special, as such a simple idea for a plot is taken and transformed, through music and rather peculiar characters, into something that will keep audiences laughing for an evening; it is a production that will not have anyone spelling "regret."
