4) Brighton Beach Memoirs at Theatre Arlington
You waited and waited, and now it’s the FINAL WEEKEND for Brighton Beach Memoirs. Another Neil Simon classic, follow Eugene as he Dreams of baseball and girls.

Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche and her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style.
