Lewis University's Theatre Department presents "Broadway Bound"

Sunday, February 17, 2019

Held at Lewis University's Philip Lynch Theatre, Broadway Bound was the nominee for the 1987 Tony Award, Best Play & Drama Desk Award, Best Play Finalist, and winner of the 1987 Pulitzer Prize in Drama. Part three of Neil Simon’s acclaimed autobiographical trilogy, (Brighton Beach Memories and Biloxi Blues), the play finds Eugene and his older brother Stanley trying to break into the world of show business as professional comedy writers. Meanwhile, the siblings are coping with their parents break-up and eventually divorce. When their material is broadcast on the radio for the first time, the family is upset to hear a thinly-veiled portrait of themselves played for laughs. “Contains some of the author’s most accomplished writing.” - The New York Times “A lovely play; warm, perceptive and gently humorous.” – Newsday
