One of Neil Simon’s best plays focuses on Herb Tucker, a modestly successful Hollywood writer who abandoned his New York family 16 years earlier. He and girlfriend, Steffy, are surprised when his forgotten past reappears in the form of Libby, his bold, adventurous teenage daughter who has hitch-hiked all the way from Brooklyn with dreams of movie stardom. How they pick up the pieces is a poignant, tender, yet very funny story.
“Terrific...Sweet, dandy and touching.”
