Bloomington Civic Theatre's "Prisoner" having a perpetually rotten summer
The city has been likened to a zoo . . .
The Prisoner of 2nd Avenue was a 1975 film starring Jack Lemmon and Anne Bancroft; three years before that, however, it was a Tony nominated play by Neil Simon . It was very much a play of its time, when a sense of social breakdown and mass financial insecurity eroded many people's sense that their lives had meaning, or that the world was fair (we've come so far since 1975).
