Lost in Yonkers plays at The Weston Playhouse until July 29. This play by Neil Simon won both a Tony and a Pulitzer Prize. The production at Weston captures the world of 1942 through the acting, the set and costumes. Facing difficult times with humor, two adolescent boys are left by their grieving father with their domineering grandmother and their kind, but limited, aunt.
Bob and I have enjoyed this play each time we have seen it. Each production brings its own quality to this engaging story. We were particularly pleased to see Michael Seltzer in the role of the older son as we have watched his work since he was a member of Weston’s Young Company for several years.
The play has only a one week run. Click on the links below to hear our discussion, to order tickets and find out about the rest of the Playhouse season.
