Neil Simon plays

Just finished listening to some classical Neil Simon plays. I don’t like the Suites very much, though they have their moments. Simon is best at his craft when he writes personal comedies.

My favorite plays are:

Brighton Beach Memoirs
Biloxi Blues
Barefoot in the Park
Broadway Bound

Some other good but less believable ones:

Chapter Two
Lost in Yonkers
The Odd Couple
Prisoner of Second Avenue

The balance are more slapstick and aren’t so good:

Plaza Suite
California Suite
