Synopsis

Set in Brooklyn, New York, Brighton Beach Memoirs tells the story of a large Polish-Jewish family living in one household during The Great Depression. The events are told through Eugene's honest, sarcastic "memoirs" and follow the Jerome family through a financial crisis, health concerns and a search for identity.

A Broadway classic and one of Simon's most popular plays, Brighton Beach Memoirs had its debut in 1983, starring Matthew Broderick as the snarky protagonist, Eugene. The show had almost 1,300 performances and took home two Tony Awards, before being adapted into a 1986 movie starring Jonathan Silverman and Blythe Danner.

"Hilarious comedy ... His finest play… A delightful and enriching experience," CBS-TV said.
