Brighton Beach Memoirs is the first play in Neil Simon’s semi-autobiographical comedic Eugene trilogy, which also includes Biloxi Blues and Broadway Bound. The story of Brighton Beach Memoirs follows almost 15-year-old Eugene Jerome as he grows up in 1937 Brooklyn. Eugene learns about girls, family, relationships, and the impending war. Eugene makes many witty observations about life and the need for the family throughout the play, as he interacts with his passionate, quirky Polish-Jewish relatives.
Due to the ongoing concern of the COVID-19 pandemic and to ensure the safety of our actors, artists, patrons and guests, The Merlin Players will require proof of vaccine or negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours upon entering the theater as well as requiring masks in all areas of the theater. In addition to audiences, we have mandated COVID-19 vaccinations for performers and volunteers.
These protocols are subject to change. We will continue to monitor Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and MN Dept of Health (MDH) guidance and recommendations.
