About the Author

Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright, Neil Simon, has become America's most prolific and popular dramatist. While exaggerated, his portrayals of individual angst and dysfunctional family relationships explore life's emotional truths, bringing audiences from laughter to tears and back every time. A Kennedy Center Honor for Lifetime Achievement recipient, Neil is commercially the most successful playwright in history with more than thirty Broadway hits, including four that ran concurrentlya distinction afforded no other author. In recognition of his success, the Shubert Organization renamed a 1920s-era theatre in Manhattan the Neil Simon Theatre.

Broadway successes include Come Blow Your Horn (Brooks Atkinson Theatre), Barefoot in the Park (Biltmore Theatre), The Odd Couple (Plymouth Theatre), Chapter Two and They're Playing Our Song (Imperial Theatre), Brighton Beach Memoirs (Alvin Theatre), Biloxi Blues (Neil Simon Theatre), Broadway Bound (Broadhurst Theatre), and Laught


Mike Nichols "Neil, while telling the absolute truth, makes things both funnier and more positive. And then I realize with a pang that this is truly how it was. I miss it. I miss it all."
Steve Martin "Neil Simon has created that rare thing: an autobiographical page-turner. It's a funny and moving work. I cried till I laughed."
Gwen Verdon ""Rewrites" is courageously honest and revealing. We all lived, through Neil, a life full of laughter, wonder and sorrow."
Hal Prince "A life in the theater is often a refuge from childhood demons. Neil Simon has charted his escape route in this characteristically straightforward, self-critical, and compassionate autobiography of his early years."
