About the Play:

Finalist for 1987 Pulitzer Prize in Drama

Broadway Bound is a full-length comedy by Neil Simon. In the third and last play of his Brighton Beach trilogy, Eugene and his brother deal with their parents' crumbling marriage as they start careers as comedy writers.

Broadway Bound is about family and the ties that bind. Eugene Jerome (based on Neil Simon) and his older brother Stanley are trying to break into the world of show business as professional comedy writers, while coping with their parents break-up and eventual 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. How will Eugene and his brother balance their loyalties to their family and to their ambitions? The conclusion of the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright's trilogy which began with Brighton Beach Memoirs and Biloxi Blues.

Broadway Bound premiered in 1986 at Duke University's Reynolds Theater. The play opened on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre later that year, where it played for 756 performances. The play is regularly performed in repertory, college, and community theatre productions.

What people say:

"Contains some of the author's most accomplished writing." — The New York Times

"A lovely play; warm, perceptive and gently humorous." — Newsday

"Expectedly funny and unexpectedly moving." — New York Daily News

"Simon's writing remains delightful...." — Washington Post

About the Playwright:

Neil Simon (1927-2018) was America's most prolific playwright. He had dozens of plays and nearly as many major motion pictures produced. He was showered with more Academy and Tony nominations than any other writer, and is the only playwright to have four Broadway productions running simultaneously. His plays have been produced in dozens of languages, and have been blockbuster hits from Beijing to Moscow. His true success, however, is in his unique way of exposing something real in the American spirit.
