In the second installment of Neil Simon's autobiographical Brighton Beach trilogy, Eugene Jerome (a fictionalized version of Simon) goes into basic training to serve in World War II, finding romance and developing his writing talents by observing the diverse group of men he serves with — and the strange sergeant he serves under. 

 

Exploring themes of individuality, military discipline, and the mindset of young draftees as they prepare to be deployed to World War II, "Biloxi Blues" was highly praised for its deft mix of comedy with serious issues. It won the Tony Award for Best Play and was nominated for the Drama Desk Award. 

All Seats $30.
