Brighton Beach Memoirs

Brighton Beach Memoirs is Neil Simon's semi-autobiographical comedy about coming of age during the Great Depression. Eugene Jerome is a baseball-obsessed Jewish kid who's starting to think more about girls than sports and is struggling to figure out where he'll go in life once he gets out from under his family. Although that might be "if" he gets out from underneath 'em — the Jeromes are a tight-knit bunch, and don't let go of family easily. Act Inc opens its season with the nostalgic Brighton Beach Memoirs at Lindenwood University's J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts (2300 West Clay Street; www.actincstl.com). Performances take place at 8 p.m. Friday, June 10; 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, June 11 and 12; 8 p.m. Saturday, June 25; and 2 p.m. Sunday, June 26. Tickets are $10 to $20.
