South of Broadway and The Citadel present Neil Simon’s Biloxi Blues
Neil Simon’s classic play, Biloxi Blues, combines 1940s nostalgia, an appreciation for military service, and coming-of-age comedy. It tells the story of young Army recruit Eugene Morris Jerome as he travels from Brooklyn, New York to Biloxi, Mississippi for boot camp during World War II. On his quest to find love, achieve fame, and attain his manhood, Eugene is joined by a diverse band of multi-talented recruits, an old-school drill instructor, an enterprising prostitute, and a local girl who might just be the one. This full-scale production by South of Broadway Theatre Company is in partnership with The Citadel’s Fine Arts Program, and directed by acclaimed on-set Hollywood film coach Bob Luke, Citadel class of 1976. Performances are March 20th and 21st at 7:30 pm, at The Buyer Auditorium on The Citadel campus in Charleston.
