    Synopsis: 

    Neil Simon's 45 Seconds From Broadway marks his 32nd play. The comedy is set in the coffee shop of the Edison Hotel, located in the heart of New York's Theatre District. Cafe Edison is frequented by theatrical types, including producers, actors, writers, comics, and out-of-towners. Known affectionately as "The Polish Tea Room," it is literally about 45 seconds from Broadway, but miles away from making it on the Great White Way. It's a hangout for Mom's cooking (potato latkes), laughter and a part in a show. Leading the cast are Lewis J. Stadlen, Marian Seldes, Louis Zorich and Joan Copeland.

    Broken Lives and Healing at the Coffee Shop

    Ben Brantley

    November 12, 2001: They're such thoughtful folks, the old couple who run the coffee shop in the sentimental new comedy ''45 Seconds From Broadway,'' that you would have expected them to put one of those signs in their window. You know, the kind that help visitors from foreign places orient themselves when they're feeling lost in big cities. The sign, in this instance, would declare the following useful information: ''Neil Simon spoken here.''
