Lake City Playhouse stages playwright’s ‘Lost in Yonkers’

Neil Simon ranks among the most popular of American playwrights. “Come Blow Your Horn,” “The Odd Couple,” “Sweet Charity” “Brighton Beach Memoirs,” “The Goodbye Girl” and “Barefoot in the Park” are among the many works from Simon’s pen to grace the American stage.

In Coeur d’Alene this weekend, Lake City Playhouse will debut its production of Simon’s Pulitzer Prize-winning, 1991 drama “Lost in Yonkers.”

“Yonkers” is a coming-of-age tale about a boy, Jay, and his younger brother Artie, who are sent to live with their Grandma Kurnitz in 1942 Yonkers.

The Lake City production is directed by Brittani C. Kelly and will run through May 6.
