Guthrie's Lost In Yonkers Opens Tonight

Guthrie's Lost In Yonkers Opens Tonight

Minneapolis may be 1000 miles from Yonkers, New York, but its premier theatre serves as the setting for a revival of Lost In Yonkers, which opens this evening. Neil Simon won both a Tony for Best Play and Pulitzer Prize in 1991 for his semi-autobiographical writing about two boys forced to live with their grandmother after their mother's death. Incredibly enough, this marks the first time a Simon play has been presented on the Guthrie stage.

The new Guthrie Theatre production is directed by Gary Gisselman and its cast includes Michael Booth, Dylan Frederick, Ryan Howell, Rosaleen Linehan, Noah Madoff, Ryan McCartan, Stephen Pelinski, Finnerty Steeves and Suzanne Warmanen.

The show is scheduled to run through November 12. On October 8, Simon himself will take to the stage with Guthrie Director Joe Dowling in a dialogue about the state of American theatre and playwriting.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
