Neil Simon's autobiography-tinged comedy-drama, Biloxi Blues, plays Walnut Street Theatre Jan. 13 Feb. 29 in Philadelphia.

The further adventures of Eugene Morris Jerome — whose life and times are seen in Brighton Beach Memoirs and Broadway Bound — take place in a hot and humid Mississippi boot camp during World War II. "His colorful bunk-mates and the lovely local ladies soon inspire more than Eugene's patriotic duty," according to Walnut Street production notes. Opening is Jan. 21. Frank Ferrante directs Jesse Bernstein as Eugene, with Josh Clark, Jeffrey Coon, Aaron Crombie, Steven Klein, Matt Pfeiffer, Madi Distefano, T.J. Sokso and Elizabeth Webster.

Designers are David P. Gordon (set), Colleen McMillan (costume), Troy A. Martin-O'Shia (lighting) and Matthew Callahan (sound).

The play won 1985 Tony Awards for Best Play, Best Director (Gene Saks) and Best Featured Actor-Play (Barry Miller).
