This classic Neil Simon play is about Mel Edison, an advertising executive who is at war with New York City, with his neighbors, and most of all with himself. After being laid off from his job of 22 years, he has a hard time breaking the news to his devoted wife, Edna, but after their apartment is robbed and it doesn’t seem possible that things can get any worse, Mel has a nervous breakdown. Soon, Edna goes back to work to support the family while Mel becomes a virtual prisoner in his own home, feeling worthless and unsure of what the future holds. When Edna loses her own job and begins to unravel, Mel might just have an opportunity to prove he can still be someone she can depend on.
"The Prisoner of Second Avenue" is a comedy that also shows how a husband and wife can weather any storm as long they have each other’s love, support and a very big shovel.
Performances will be held from Feb. 10 - 26 at 8 pm Fridays, 8 pm Saturdays and 2 pm Sundays.
Seating is limited. Tickets start at $28.
