Lost In Yonkers preview

The Pulitzer Prize winning Neil Simon play "Lost in Yonkers" comes to the Joplin Little Theater stage next weekend.  KOAM's very own Lisa Olliges is starring in it!  KOAM's Michael Hayslip sits down with her, along with actor Gabe Thomas. 

"Lost in Yonkers" is a drama with several comedic moments.  The story follows two boys who are forced to spend nearly a year with their German grandmother as their father seeks work during the war.  It's a family where each has their quirks.  The boys meet Aunt Bella, who gets lost coming home, Uncle Louie who appears to be a henchman for the mob, and Aunt Gert who seems to inhale at the end of every sentence.
