About the show:

“In Lost in Yonkers, Neil Simon has done it again, with a craftsmanship and skill probably unmatched in the contemporary English-speaking theater.”
--Clive Barnes, New York Post
Critics and audiences agree that Lost in Yonkers is one of Neil Simon’s greatest plays.  It was his breakthrough script that finally won for him a long-deserved Pulitzer Prize as well as the Tony Award for best play of 1991 and it ran for two years on Broadway.
It is the story of two adolescent boys compelled to live with their curmudgeon German grandmother and her eccentric children in World War II Yonkers, New York. Bella is their delightfully childlike aunt who conspires with the boys to slip out from under Grandma’s authoritarian rule over the family ice cream parlor.  Uncle Louie is a New York City mobster right out of a Humphrey Bogart movie who enlists his nephews in his efforts to stay on the lam from some disgruntled colleagues.

The boys learn valuable lessons about love and survival from their screwball relatives in this heartwarming, poignant and hysterically funny play from America’s master of comedy.
