Coming off of its raucous and imaginative season opener, Peter and the Starcatcher, CTC is now bringing Neil Simon’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning classic Lost in Yonkers to life. Opening October 6.
Set in 1942, this emotionally rich dramedy, centers around two teenage brothers, Jay and Arty, as their father, Eddie, leaves them to live temporarily with their stern grandmother. They are left to contend with a fascinating and compelling array of characters all the while adjusting to their new lives in this strange place called Yonkers.
