Neil Simon


The Good Doctor- Neil Simon does Chekhov

Simple Production =More Laughs and Entertainment

A delightful revival of Neil Simon’s The Good Doctor opened last night in the Auditorium of University Heights Center, produced by Penguin Productions, a teen theatre group, who last performed at the Seattle Outdoor Theatre Festival in Volunteer Park.
