Broadway Bound

Odyssey Theatre Ensemble

2055 S Sepulveda Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90025

8:00pm to 2:00pm

Seinfeld’s Jason Alexander (who starred in the original Broadway production) directs Neil Simon's hilarious, heartwarming semi-autobiographical play. Brothers Eugene and Stanley Jerome are determined to break into show business as professional comedy writers. As their parents' relationship unravels, the brothers convene in the upstairs bedroom of their Brighton Beach home to write and rehearse material. When the brothers use their real-life family situation as inspiration for a radio comedy skit, they quickly learn the complications that ensue when life informs art. A finalist for the the1987 Pulitzer Prize for drama and the recipient of four Tony nominations when it premiered on Broadway, Broadway Bound sparkles with the potent combination of Simon’s celebrated comic genius and his deep understanding of family dynamics. Aug. 2 – Sept. 21; 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90025; $10-$30; 310-477-2055 ext 2; www.OdysseyTheatre.com; https://www.facebook.com/OdysseyTheatre
