April 17: Brighton Beach Memoirs by Neil Simon
A Domino Players production directed by Matt Fotis
The first play in Neil Simon's autobiographical trilogy presents a portrait of the writer as a young teen in 1937 living with his family in a crowded, lower middle-class Brooklyn walk-up. Eugene Jerome, standing in for the author, is the narrator and central character. Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and Grandpa the Socialist and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style. This bittersweet memoir evocatively captures the life of a struggling Jewish household where, as his father states "if you didn't have a problem, you wouldn't be living here."

Sharing Your Thoughts

Bence, a fan (and participant) of local theater agreed to answer some questions after seeing Albright's recent production of The Masque of the Beauty and the Beast.  Here are some of his thoughts:

1. What was your favorite part of The Masque of the Beauty and the Beast?
-The whole production was good.  I had no favorite part because the whole thing was amazing.

2. What was your least favorite part?
-The part where the beast was dying.

3. Did any of the scenes stand out to you?  Which ones?
-When the narrator came in at the beginning and walked the isle, and he leaned into the rows and talked to the audience.
Also, the two statues at the beginning were pretty amazing.  The set and lighting was great, too.

4. Which character was your favorite? Why?
-The narrator - he put a lot of energy into his part and was very dramatic.  I loved his costume as well.

5. Do you have any suggestions for the actors, actresses, or anyone else involved in this production to make it better?
