Linda Lavin in "Broadway Bound"

Since the announcement of the cancellation of Neil Simon’s Broadway Bound at the Nederlander, I am sorry audiences won’t get the chance to see Laurie Metcalf dive head first into the play, which garnered a Best Actress in a Play Tony for Linda Lavin in that original 1986 production. Here is a performance of a scene from that year’s Tony Award telecast with Lavin, and that production’s Eugene, Jonathan Silverman.
