(MANASQUAN, NJ) -- Algonquin Arts Theatre is presenting Broadway Bound by Neil Simon from January 20 through January 29. This is the poignant and funny conclusion of the semi-autobiographical Eugene trilogy following Brighton Beach Memoirs (2020) and Biloxi Blues (2021). Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.
Eugene and his brother Stanley are trying to break into the world of professional comedy writing, while coping with their parents' messy and gut-wrenching split. When their material is broadcast on the radio for the first time, the rest of the family is upset to hear a comedic rendition of their own trials and tribulations. How will Eugene and his brother balance their loyalties to their family and to their art?
The cast for Broadway Bound includes: Sean Dickinson (Eugene); Nick D'Ambrosia (Stanley); Paul Caliendo (Ben); Pamela Ward (Kate); Joe Minnella (Jack); and Chrissy Reinhard (Blanche).
