Tony Award winner Judy Kaye will play Grandma Kurnitz in Simon's Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Directed by Scott Schwartz, Lost in Yonkers will run Jan. 23 - Feb. 28. Previews run from Jan. 23 - Jan. 27. Opening night is Jan. 28 at 8:00 p.m.
Neil Simon's most critically acclaimed work, 'Lost in Yonkers' received both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play. Set in the summer of 1942, two Young Brothers, Arty and Jay, are left to live with their grandmother by their financially strapped father. The boys must contend with the dominating Grandma Kurnitz who runs the family-owned candy store, their mentally-challenged Aunt Bella and her secret romance, and Uncle Louie, a small-time hood. A mix of both comedy and drama, Lost in Yonkers was hailed by the New York Post as "The best play Simon ever wrote."
In addition to Kaye, the cast also features Jeffrey Bender (Louie), Steven Kaplan (Jay), Austyn Myers (Arty), Amanda Naughton (Gert), Jennifer Regan (Bella) and Spencer Rowe (Eddie).
The 'Lost in Yonkers' creative team includes Ralph Funicello (Scenic Design), Alejo Vietti (Costume Design), Matthew McCarthy (Lighting Design), Paul Peterson (Sound Design) and Diana Moser (Stage Manager).
