RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

This Broadway hit is a composite of Neil Simon and Anton Chekhov. In one sketch a fiesty old woman storms a bank and upbraids the manager for his gout and lack of money. In another, a father takes his son to a house where he will be initiated into the mysteries of sex, only to relent at the last moment and leave the boy more perplexed than ever. In another sketch, a crafty seducer goes to work on a wedded woman, only to realize that the woman has been in command from the first overture. Let us not forget the classic tale of a man who offers to drown himself for three rubles. The stories are droll, the portraits affectionate, the humor infectious and the fun unending.
"A great deal of warmth and humor in his retelling of these Chekhovian tales." - Newhouse Newspapers

"There is much fun here. Mr. Simon's comic fancy is admirable." -The New York Times

The Good Doctor opened on Broadway at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre on November 27, 1973.

Neil Simon has done an incredibly fine job of creating three dimentional characters in a smoothly crafted set of senarios that ring true in 2014 as well as anytime.  The author has given the production crew the latitude to make the entire play simple or complex.  If a theatre company has adequate funds to invest in fancy and elaborate costumes, that would be a great challange.  Those of us with limited funds need to be creative in both costuming and sets.  I can hardly wait to cast this play and get into rehearsals.

The numerous scenes allow the actors to stretch their talents as they portray various characters. The script is funny; the set can be simple; and the costume period is gorgeous.
