Neil Simon’s classic wit sparkles in the telling of forgotten anniversaries, a covert rendezvous, and a bride who won’t come out of the bathroom for her own wedding. In the Arvada Center’s production, the same group of actors play different roles in each of the stories, creating a repertory theatre in miniature!
