About this show

A coming of age story... with lots of pushups! Meet Eugene, a naïve army recruit looking for action (but not the battle kind) in Neil Simon's hilarious comedy about boot camp during WWII. Expecting the army to be dolls and USO dances, he instead encounters a tough drill sergeant and a platoon of often hostile recruits. Armed with only his journal and a sense of humor, Eugene is determined to leave camp with everything he came in with, except his virginity. Instead, he is forced to confront difficult issues and his reactions to them. It's an awakening journey where the aspiring young writer takes away more than just basic training. Tony Award-Winner: Best Play Drama Desk Award-Winner: Outstanding New Play Directed by Max Williams
