YONKERSAccording to the New York Post, LOST IN YONKERS is the best play that Neil Simon ever wrote. From March 24 through April 10, Phoenix will be treated to his play, thanks to the Arizona Theatre Company. As an added bonus, it stars Tony-award winning actress, Judy Kaye, who also happens to be a Phoenix native.
LOST IN YONKERS takes place in August of 1942 when the United States was at war. It follows the Kurnitz family where Grandma has to look after her two teenage grandsons for a year. It’s a clash of generations and battle of wills as this family learns important lessons about duty, devotion, trust and love. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, LOST IN YONKERS is as comical as it is poignant.
