Celebrating Neil Simon’s comedy

As a playwright, becoming a household name for play is a notable feat. Neil Simon had 30 plays open on Broadway, including five musicals, and had 18 of his plays adapted for film or television. The Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright has also been nominated for Oscars, Tonys and Academy Awards.

And this Saturday, Nov. 9, The Sandisfield Players will pay homage to that feat with the “Celebration of the Work of Neil Simon.”

Through the instigation of Sandisfield Player Charles Evers Whyte, excerpts of some of Neil Simon’s best-known comedy will come to life at the Sandisfield Arts Center Stage from 8 to 10 p.m., said Benjamin Luxon, director of the production.

“The players came to me with much enthusiasm about doing this,” said Luxon. “Evers had suggested a number of little scenes and that’s what really got this off the ground.”
