Lakewood Playhouse Returns to the Stage With BROADWAY BOUND

The LAKEWOOD PLAYHOUSE, re-opened to public performances, opens its 83rd Season main stage with the third installment of Neil Simon's semi-autobiographical trilogy, Broadway Bound. Lakewood Playhouse previously produced the first two installments, Brighton Beach Memoirs in its 80th season, and Biloxi Blues in season 81.

Broadway Bound takes place four years after the end of World War II. Eugene Morris Jerome, and his older brother Stanley, deal with their parents' relationship falling apart as they work together toward being comedy writers for the radio and television. They discover that their father, Jack, has been cheating on their mother, Kate, and they try to find ways for her to cope with the loss when Jack may eventually leave. When Eugene and Stanley find a job where they can write short comedic skits for the radio, they obscurely make fun of their own family, which causes problems with they father. Later, Kate holds a nostalgic conversation with Eugene, revealing how she had tried to win his father's heart when she was younger.

The play received four Tony Award nominations, and won two (Best Actress in a Play and Best Featured Actor in a Play). It received four nominations for the Drama Desk Award, winning two. It also was a 1987 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It was adapted into a television movie in 1992.

Acting in Broadway Bound are Brynne Garman (Kate's sister Blanche), Dave Hall (Uncle Ben), W. Scott Pinkston (Jack), Pamela Roza (Kate), CHARLIE STEVENS (Eugene), and Chap Wolff (Stanley). Garman, Pinkston, and Roza are returning to reprise their roles from Brighton Beach Memoirs. The voices of John Olive, and Mike and Noreen Slease, are also heard. Broadway Bound is directed by Lakewood Playhouse's former (and first) managing artistic director John Olive, who also directed the previous two installments.

Olive is also the production's set designer. Designing costumes is Rachel Wilkie, with lighting and sound designed by LPH's Master Electrician Djeneba Toure-Burke.

A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE is ironically an important work by none other than the esteemed Oscar Wilde. A thinking man’s comedy, Wilde imbues this work with witty banter while challenging society’s norms. The clips along with a steady stream of laughs punctuated by occasions of loud guffaws and eye-popping truths. You will be charmed. You will be delighted. You will be entertained.
