"Wow! Two enjoyable hours of forget-your-troubles theater, with plenty of chuckles and some out-loud guffaws along the way … Wuhl and joy are terrific together and keep getting better and better the deeper into the play and their relationship we get … Simon's eighteenth Broadway show sneaks up on you and grabs you by the heart." - StageSceneLA
About the Show
Written by Neil Simon
Directed by Gregg W. Brevoort
It's 1980 and struggling screenwriter Herbert Tucker suddenly finds his estranged 19-year-old daughter Libby has hitchhiked to Hollywood and landed on his doorstep. After sixteen years of disconnection, Libby sweeps into Herb's home, convinced that he can give her the silver screen acting career she desires, and demands the love and fatherly guidance he owes her. With the isolation of his California bungalow disturbed, Herb is forced to deal with the realities of fatherhood, and a renewed sense of direction that may affect his relationship with his on-again-off-again girlfriend Steffy. This funny and heartwarming story from one of America's most renowned playwrights proves that even the most dysfunctional families can undergo astounding transformations.
