 GRANDMA, WHAT BIG TEETH YOU HAVE ...

This coming-of-age tale by Neil Simon, a bittersweet comedy set in Yonkers, New York during the year 1942, centers on two teenage boys left by their father, a recent widower, in the care of their stone-hearted grandmother and gentle childlike aunt, during the year 1942 in Yonkers, New York – as they learn to cope with and begin to understand their somewhat out-of-kilter family and the grown-up world in general.  It was lavishly praised by critics, one of whom commented that as you see it “... you experience a new kind of laughter ... a silent laughter that doesn’t explode into a yuk but implodes straight into your heart.” - Newsweek.

Neil Simon (born in 1927) is regarded as America’s quintessential comedic playwright.  Many critics and theatergoers consider Lost in Yonkers to be Simon’s best work and the highlight of his career.  It won the 1991 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Drama Desk Award for Best New Play, in addition to five Tony Awards, including ones for Best Play and Best Leading and Supporting Actresses (Mercedes Ruehl & Irene Worth).  The play ran on Broadway for 780 performances.  About it one reviewer proclaimed exuberantly: “... a comedy, a drama, and a hit ... Mr. Simon has given us all three.” - Wall Street Journal.
