News PHOTO CALL: Cast of Broadway's "The Neil Simon Plays" Begins Rehearsal
The stars of "The Neil Simon Plays" — Broadway's upcoming productions of Brighton Beach Memoirs and Broadway Bound — met the press Aug. 24 as the company began rehearsals.

David Cromer will stage the two plays that will be seen in repertory at the Nederlander Theatre. Previews begin Oct. 2 for Brighton Beach Memoirs and Nov. 18 for Broadway Bound.

The casts will feature Laurie Metcalf, Dennis Boutsikaris, Santino Fontana, Jessica Hecht, Josh Grisetti, Allan Miller, Noah Robbins and Alexandra Socha.

Brighton Beach Memoirs "centers on young Jewish teen Eugene Morris Jerome and his extended family living in a crowded home in the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn in 1937."

In Broadway Bound, "it's the late 1940s. Eugene and his older brother Stanley have started their careers as professional comedy writers, but at home in Brighton Beach, their parents' marriage is falling apart."
