Brighton Beach Memoirs is the first of playwright Neil Simon’s unofficial “autobiographical trilogy” (followed by Biloxi Blues and Broadway Bound). Jonathan Silverman repeats his stage role as Simon’s teenaged alter-ego Eugene, who lives in 1937 Brooklyn with his parents (Blythe Danner and Bob Dishy), older brother Stanley (Brian Drillinger), aunt (Judith Ivey) and female cousins (Stacey Glick and Lisa Waltz). Much is made of Eugene’s burgeoning sexual self-awareness and his father’s efforts to support his huge extended family on his meager salary.
