ACT 1-winner of the 2011 First Night Award for Outstanding Play-will kick off 2013 with its presentation of Neil Simon's Broadway Bound, the final chapter of the playwright's trilogy based on his own early years.
Will Butler and Jordan Ravelette, who appeared during the 2011-12 Circle Players season as Eugene and Stanley Jerome in Brighton Beach Memoirs, will once again take on the roles in Broadway Bound.
