First Ink for YONKERS in The Post

NEIL SIMON REDUX: Kyle Schliefer and Marcus Kyd in

This great little Backstage piece has all virtue of being totally true. Tons left out including the obvious — that for whatever imperfections there might be in this very alive piece of writing, LOST IN YONKERS is Neil Simon’s best play; his richest; his most surprisingly humane. Prediction (after today’s amazing invited dress rehearsal): We’re gonna do good… by being good in a really great play. So pleased to be presenting it now, during this bitterly divisive time. If ever a play could bring warring family members together (and I’m speaking at the civic/communitarian level here), this play is it.

Pay What You Can Previews start tonight at 7:30 and continue Thursday…
