Brighton Beach Memoirs
a comedy by Neil Simon

TheatreWorks of SoIN is pleased to announce that tickets for Brighton Beach Memoirs by Neil Simon are now available.  This coming-of-age comedy takes place in Brooklyn during the Great Depression. This very funny and touching play focuses on Eugene Morris Jerome - a teenager searching to find his identity in a house overcrowded with extended family. This show is rated PG-13 for minor language and adult content.

Performances will take place at TheatreWorks of SoIN’s home in the former historic Indiana State Bank Building (203 E. Main Street) in Downtown New Albany.  There are 10 performances beginning June 6 and concluding on June 17. Tickets are $18 for adults and $16 for seniors and students.  If you have trouble getting tickets online, you can call 812-725-7601.

Brighton Beach Memoirs premiered on Broadway at the Alvin Theatre on March 27, 1983 starring Matthew Broderick, and transferred to the 46th Street Theatre, where it closed on May 11, 1986 after 1,299 performances and 7 previews.  A revival opened on Broadway on October 25, 2009 at the Nederlander Theatre featuring Laurie Metcalf as Eugene’s Mother, Kate.

Jason Roseberry, the director, said, “This is one of my all-time favorite shows because it captures what a ‘real’ family looks like at any point in the history of this country.  Even though these characters exist in the 1930’s during the Great Depression, their challenges mirror those faced by any family today. Neil Simon brilliantly captures the humor and struggles that go along with trying to be a “good” parent or a teenager trying to find their place in the world.  These concepts are timeless. I have heard people describe this show as the theatrical equivalent of ‘wearing a warm sweater on a cool autumn day.’ This is the feeling we are trying to capture with this production.”
