Audible Editor Reviews

The last play in Simon's semiautobiographical Brighton Beach Trilogy, about aspiring writer "Eugene Jerome," starts Eugene toward marriage and a career in writing comedy as his nuclear family undergoes various forms of fission around him. There are no weak links in the performance ensemble, only strong and stronger, with JoBeth Williams the standout for her often-affecting, even powerful, depiction of Eugene's mother. Of course, she does get the juiciest moments in this mixture of humor and drama. This deft production, while not profound, moves and entertains. The infectious laughter of a live audience enhances the experience.

Publisher's Summary

Nominated of a Tony Award for Best Play, this is the final installment of the playwright's acclaimed biographical trilogy (preceded by Brighton Beach Memoirs and Biloxi Blues).

Having returned from World War II, Eugene Jerome and his brother Stanley pair up to break into the world of professional comedy writing. Inspiration strikes when they aim their sights on their dysfunctional family - and the network broadcasts it nationwide!

    "entertaining"

    I think "Broadway Bound" is the weakest of the three plays in this trilogy. Still, this is a strong cast and a good rendition of the play, and it held my attention.
