The Prisoner of Second Avenue

The Prisoner of Second Avenue

SKU: 244 Categories: , , Tags: ,

Neil Simon takes a good look at apartment life, career and role reversals, a nervous breakdown, and the love, torture, care, or inertia that somehow keeps a couple in a relationship for many years. At points, it’s laugh-out-loud funny; at other times, it offers sensitive insight into the human condition. Fast-moving dialog with nonstop Simon quips and jokes performed by two fine actors: who could ask for more?

A full cast performance featuring:

Annie Abbott as Pearl
Lorin Dreyfuss as Henry Edison/Male Voices
Richard Dreyfuss as Mel Edison
Betty Garrett as Jesse
Sharon Madden as Pauline/Female Voices
Marsha Mason as Edna Edison

Pre-recorded voices:

Warren Olney as Roger Keating
Scott Schwartz as Stan Jennings

Directed by Scott Schwartz. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles in January of 2000.
