>The Prisoner of Second Avenue


We went to see Neil Simon’s The Prisoner of Second Avenue at the Vaudeville Theatre last night. It’s about a guy who loses his job, loses his mind, and then puts so much pressure on his wife that she loses it too. I’m not sure why Pat chose it.

Jeff Goldblum is good, but the production really gets going when Mercedes Ruehl’s character comes into her own later in the play. Not all the critics have liked it but it was a good night out.
