Neil Simon has a way of storytelling that is serious, sprinkled with humor. He has often wrote about his own family experiences growing up and Lost in Yonkers is no exception. The Adobe Theater in Albuquerque presents the story of a Jewish family in 1942.
The play revolves around the Kurnitz family. Eddie Kurnitz, played by Vernon Poitras leave his two boys with their grandmother while he leaves town to try and solve a dire financial situation.
The boys are played by Nik Hoover as Jay and Vicente F. Vargas as Arty. The two fear the grandmother and are not looking forward to staying with her.
Their only salvation is their child-like, absent-minded aunt Bella, played by Kamila Kasparian.
The hard-as-nails matriarch was brilliantly portrayed by Ninette Mordaunt. She has the entire family walking on eggshells around her. As the story progresses, the audience discovers she cannot get beyond a grievance from the past, she became mean and bitter because of many losses. Facts are revealed throughout, which let the audience sympathize with the grandmother.
