The Arizona Rose Theatre is bringing back one of its most popular shows, Neil Simon’s “Lost in Yonkers,” beginning Feb. 24. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize, this heartfelt comedy is drawn from Simon’s experiences growing up in New York City. Set during World War II, it is the coming-of-age story of two young brothers, Arty and Jay, sent to live with their formidable grandmother, the sweet but damaged Aunt Bella, and Uncle Louie, a small-time hoodlum, in a strange new world called Yonkers.
