Biloxi Blues

Biloxi Blues
by Neil Simon
Directed by Larry Jones
Produced by Jim Crawford
March 9 – April 14, 2007
Neil Simon’s poignant WWII comedy Biloxi Blues is equal parts nostalgia and hilarity as it details the hijinx 1943 raw recruits go through in the process of becoming fighting GI’s. Neil Simon is a legendary figure in American Theater. His plays have been performed worldwide and adapted for film and television, as well as being translated into the language of sitcoms and other foreign tongues, The Odd Couple most famously. Brighton Beach Memoirs, Biloxi Blues and Broadway Bound form a trilogy on early 20th Century American life, crafted out of Simon’s early years as kid, teenager and young adult.
