Lost in Yonkers, A Dramatic Comedy by Neil Simon
The Gaslight Baker Theatre is excited to present Lost in Yonkers as our 2019 Season opening production. Written by America’s great playwright Neil Simon, this Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play is set in 1942. Bella is 35 years old, mentally challenged, and living at home with her mother, stern Grandma Kurnitz. As the play opens, Grandma’s ne’er-do-well son Eddie deposits his two young sons on the old lady’s doorstep so that he can go on the road as a salesman. The boys are left to contend with Grandma, with Bella and her secret romance and with Louie, her brother and a small-time hoodlum, in a strange new world called Yonkers. Over the course of the play, the young boys learn lessons about love, responsibility and the importance of family that will carry them into adulthood.
Lost in Yonkers runs from Feb 8-23 with performances on Friday and Saturday at 8 pm and matiness on Sunday, Feb 17 and Saturday Feb 23 at 2 pm
