NICEVILLE — One of Neil Simon’s most well-known comedies will be presented tonight and tomorrow at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center's Sprint Theater stage in Niceville.
“The Prisoner of Second Avenue,” presented by Northwest Florida State College’s Fine & Performing Arts Division, begins at 7:30 p.m. each night.
In the play, main character Mel Edison is a well-paid executive of a high-end Manhattan firm, which has suddenly hit the skids — and he gets the ax. His wife, Edna, takes a job to tide them over; and then she too is sacked.
Compounded by air pollution killing his plants, and with the apartment walls being paper-thin, allowing him a constant earful of his neighbors' private lives, things can’t seem to get worse.
But then they do.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for youths age 18 or younger. NWFSC students receive one free ticket at the box office with valid college ID.The box office will open at 6 p.m. each show night for remaining tickets, subject to availability.
