    Sharing a Legacy of Loss Among Three Generations

    David Rooney

    March 25, 2012: After experiencing the warmly satisfying revival of “Lost in Yonkers” at the Beckett Theater it seems inconceivable that it has taken two decades for this Pulitzer- and Tony-winning 1991 Neil Simon play to return to a New York stage.

    Review: Lost in Yonkers

    Diane Snyder

    March 23, 2012: “The one place in the world you’re safe is with your family.” That’s what a shady uncle tells his two teenage nephews in the darkest play on Neil Simon’s shtick-filled résumé, Lost in Yonkers, but the words aren’t very reassuring. For brothers Jay (Matthew Gumley) and Arty (Russell Posner), the home of Grandma Kurnitz (Cynthia Harris) is no sanctuary in 1942, after their mother’s death sends their father out of town to earn money. These lost boys are thrust into the cold care of his ornery elderly mother—whose version of love is as hard to swallow as her soup—and their sweet but dim 35-year-old aunt, Bella (Finnerty Steeves), still living in the home where her wings were long ago clipped. So much for safety.
