SAN DIEGO _ Old Globe Theatre is extending Neil Simon’s Lost in Yonkers for an additional week.
Originally set to close on Feb. 28, the show will now run through Sunday, March 7.
Set in the summer of 1942, Lost in Yonkers tells the story of two young brothers, Arty and Jay, who are left to live with their grandmother by their financially strapped father. With a mix of comedy and drama, the boys compete with their dominating Grandma Kurnitz, who runs the family-owned candy store, their mentally-challenged Aunt Bella and her secret romance, and Uncle Louie, a small-time hood.
The play was hailed by the New York Post as “The best play Simon ever wrote.”
Lost in Yonkers has won the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play.
The Globe production stars Tony-winner Judy Kaye (The Phantom of the Opera) and is directed by Scott Schwartz.
