Brighton Beach Memoirs

Date: Aug 16 - Sept 01, 2024

Fountain Hills Theater announces the opening of the Neil Simon comedy, Brighton Beach Memoirs.

Part one of Neil Simon's autobiographical trilogy. Eugene Jerome, living with his family in Brooklyn dreams of baseball and girls. He must cope with his formidable mother, overworked father, and his worldly older brother. Throw in his widowed Aunt Blanche, her two daughters and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style.

Winner of three Tony Awards, Brighton Beach Memoirs is the first of Neil Simon’s ‘Eugene Trilogy’ which will continue with Biloxi Blues in which Eugene, as a young army recruit, goes through basic training as well as learning about Life and Love with a capital 'L' along with some harsher lessons, while stationed at boot camp in Biloxi, Mississippi in 1943.Then, set in 1949, the third of Neil Simon's autobiographical comedies, Broadway Bound, comes to the FHT stage. Broadway Bound follows Eugene and his brother Stanley, who are determined to become professional comedy writers. When the brothers use the trials and tribulations of their dysfunctional family as inspiration, the Jerome clan may never be the same.

Fountain Hills is privileged to be among the very few theater companies to present all three of Simon’s award-winning plays in a single season. Brighton Beach Memoirs will begin the cycle opening August 16th, 2024, followed by Biloxi Blues opening Nov. 8, 2024 and concluding with Broadway Bound which opens February 28, 2025.

FHT is delighted to have the very talented star of last season’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, Elias Matthews portraying the pivotal role of Eugene Jerome in all three plays! Brighton Beach Memoirs is directed by Gil Berry. Brighton Beach Memoirs is presented through Special Arrangement with Concord Theatricals.

Brighton Beach Memoirs will play Aug 16 – Sept 1, 2024. All performances are at Fountain Hills Theater on its Mainstage at 11445 N. Saguaro Blvd. (The Corner of Saguaro and Rand).
