Brighton Beach Memoirs

by Neil Simon

Title Details

Audio Original
Running Time
1 Hr. 52 Mins.


In Neil Simon's darkly funny memoir of his family in 1930s Brooklyn, 14-year-old Eugene is preoccupied by his passion for the Yankees and his lust for his beautiful cousin, Nora. Eugene's comic growing pains contrast with the darker issues troubling his family: poverty, illness, long-held sibling resentment, and the growing Nazi threat to relatives in Europe. With a deft and compassionate hand, Simon creates a Brooklyn universe full of memorable characters, humor, and truth.

Neil Simon's spectacular play is presented here by a full cast featuring Valerie Harper, Jonathan Silverman, and Max Casella.
