Algonquin Announces BROADWAY BOUND Cast And Creative Team

Algonquin Arts Theatre has announced the cast and creative team for its winter comedy, Broadway Bound by Neil Simon. This show completes Neil Simon's "Eugene trilogy" at the theatre following Brighton Beach Memoirs (2020) and Biloxi Blues (2021).

The show will run at Algonquin Arts Theatre from January 20 through January 29.

Broadway Bound is the poignant and funny conclusion of Neil Simon's semi-autobiographical Eugene trilogy. Eugene and his brother Stanley are trying to break into the world of professional comedy writing, while coping with their parents' messy and gut-wrenching split. When their material is broadcast on the radio for the first time, the rest of the family is upset to hear a comedic rendition of their own trials and tribulations. How will Eugene and his brother balance their loyalties to their family and to their art?
