  • "Brighton Beach Memoirs" is the first installment of Neil Simon's autobiographical trilogy. All three were originally produced for the Broadway stage before being filmed. "Biloxi Blues" (1988) was the second film to go before the cameras. Matthew Broderick played the Neil Simon role of "Eugene Jerome." Mike Nichols directed the Neil Simon screenplay. The film also featured Christopher Walken, Matt Mulhern, Corey Parker, Markus Flanagan, Casey Siemasko, Michael Dolan. Penelope Ann Miller, and Park Overall. The third, "Neil Simon's 'Broadway Bound'" (1992) was adapted for TV rather than the big screen, and starred Anne Bancroft, Hume Cronyn, Corey Parker, Jerry Orbach, Michelle Lee, and Jonathan Silverman as "Eugene," reprising the role he played in "Brighton Beach." Th Broadway play, "Brighton Beach Memoirs" opened in New York on March 27, 1983 at the Alvin Theater, after a run in Los Angeles at the end of 1982. It was written by Simon and staged by his longtime collaborator Gene Saks. Starring as "Eugene Jerome" was Matthew Broderick, who appeared in all three stage productions in the Simon trilogy. The play also featured Joyce Van Patten, Elizabeth Franz, Mindy Ingber, Jodi Thelin, Zeljko Ivanek, and Peter Michael Goetz. None of the Broadway cast appeared in the film adaptation.

    New York Times
