A classic conversation with playwright Neil Simon, whose “Brighton Beach Memoirs” was revived on Broadway, for about a week.

What happened? (Michael Riedel’s take)

We don’t know, but this conversation with Simon is nevertheless fascinating. One of the world’s all-time most successful playwrights. The witty and prolific Simon talks about his early days as a comedy writer for television and how, with great determination, he broke into writing plays for the legitimate stage.

Also, we welcome the new president of Jujamcyn Theaters, Jordan Roth. At 33, Roth is the youngest of Broadway’s major power brokers. Roth discusses the changing face of the Great White Way and his plans to help it move into the future and shine.

Finally, our favorite men about town, AndrewAndrew, of East Village Radio, file a report from the star-studded opening of Bye Bye Birdie at the new Henry Miller Theatre.
