It Happened Today in New York City
On February 21, 1991, Lost In Yonkers by Neil Simon, starring Irene Worth, Mercedes Ruehl, and Kevin Spacey, opened at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. It would go on to run for 780 performances, win Drama Desk and Tony Awards for all three stars as well as best play, as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Two years later, it was adapted to a movie that could not recapture the play’s artistic or commercial success.
