DOWNEY - "Broadway Bound," the Warren High School Drama Department's final chapter in Neil Simon's "Eugene" trilogy, opens this weekend at the school's Emerson Theatre.The production will be presented until April 9. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. In "Broadway Bound," the year is 1948 and Eugene and Stanley have begun writing comedy sketches for a small radio program on CBS. It was the worst time slot on radio, but they hope this activity will be the first step on the road to fame and fortune. As they seek out funny material, the boys' home life is rapidly disintegrating. The crises at hand include their parents' constant quarrelling (brought about by their father's philandering) and constant ribbing from their aged socialist grandfather. Tickets to see "Broadway Bound" are $8 and can be purchased by calling (562) 869-7306, ext. 5618, or online at emersontheatre.net. Proceeds will benefit the Drama Department's continued quest for young adult theater in Downey.
