Next up at Michigan Stage: Neil Simon’s “Lost in Yonkers”

Show Announcement July 08, 2024

Dubbed “the best play Simon ever wrote,” (New York Post) this Pulitzer Prize-winning dramedy beautifully captures the humor, conflict and heartbreak of a Jewish family living in Yonkers in 1942.

Lost In Yonkers by Neil Simon features creator and co-host of the NYC-based podcast We Couldn’t Help But Wonder, Elise Castle, Karen Sheridan (Rain on Fire at Flint Rep, The Hatbox at Williamston), Drew Parker (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) Joseph Sfair (Oz: The Great and Powerful), Katie Della Mora, Joshua Kroll and Kristofferson Morrison.The production is directed by Rob Roznowski.

Riddled with debt, Eddie takes to the road as a salesman, leaving his two sons to stay with tough-as-nails Grandma Kurnitz for a year. Left to contend with Grandma and cousins, Bella with her secret romance, and Louie, a small-time gangster, the boys are in for a summer they’ll never forget.

Performances run July 11 through July 20.
