Broadway Theatre and recent home to Catch Me If You Can, Hairspray, & The Music Man
Since 1927, this theatre was known as the Alvin. It was renamed in 1983 to honor Americas most prolific playwright, Neil Simon, following the successful engagement of Brighton Beach Memoirs, the first play of an autobiographical trilogy about his youth with his family. Fittingly, in 1985, the second play of Mr. Simons trilogy, Biloxi Blues played there successfully. In 1992, Mr. Simon returned again with his play, Jakes Women.
