Lost in Yonkers - 2018 - Off-Broadway

LOST IN YONKERS tells the story of Jay and Arty, who find their lives turned upside down when their father Eddie moves south for work, leaving them with their no-nonsense Grandmother and their loving but absent-minded spinster Aunt Bella. Along the way, they're also introduced to their Uncle Louie, a small-time crook and their kind Aunt Gert, who has developed a serious (but hilarious) breathing problem due to the fear she has for her own mother.

The December production will be presented as a semi-staged reading with proceeds from ticket sales going to The National Alzheimer's Association, in honor of the late Neil Simon who recently passed away from the disease.
