Montana Repertory Theatre's touring production of Biloxi Blues
UNH Celebrity Series presents Biloxi Blues
Durham NH –
The University of New Hampshire Celebrity Series will present Montana Repertory Theatre's touring production of Biloxi Blues on April 9 at 7:00pm at the Paul Creative Arts Center’s Johnson Theatre.
Neil Simon’s hit play follows the adventures of Eugene Morris Jerome and his fellow Army inductees as they struggle through basic training near Biloxi, Mississippi, in 1943. An aspiring writer who sees himself as an outsider observing the craziness around him, Eugene hopes to somehow remain “neutral ... like Switzerland.” He spends much of his free time recounting conversations and impressions in his journal, feeling a little ashamed for betraying the “secret and private thoughts’’ of his fellow soldiers.
“Biloxi Blues is both heartwarming and funny.”
– The New York Times
