Brighton Beach Memoirs, Biloxi Blues, and Broadway Bound are all parts of Neil Simon’s acclaimed autobiographical trilogy. Broadway Bound is the show that finds Eugene and his older brother Stanley trying to break into the world of show business as professional comedy writers. This is occurring while they are coping with their parents’ break-up and eventual divorce. When their material is broadcast on the radio for the first time, their family is upset to hear a thinly-veiled portrait of themselves played for laughs.
Neil Simon’s semi-autobiographical play, Broadway Bound, opened on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theater on December 4, 1986. The two-act dramatic comedy centers on two brothers, good-humored lovable Eugene, and business-like Stanley, as they struggle to break into comedy writing. The character Eugene is Simon’s alter ego and appears in each of the three plays.
A prolific and successful American playwright and screenwriter, Simon has received many prestigious awards, including three Tony Awards, a Pulitzer Prize, a Golden Globe, and the Kennedy Center Honors. Newsday calls Broadway Bound “A lovely play; warm, perceptive, and gently humorous.” In 1987, Broadway Bound was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama and nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play as well as a Drama Desk Award for Best Play.
