Golden Globe and Emmy award-winner Danny DeVito makes his West End
debut alongside Olivier and Tony award-winner Richard Griffiths, in a new
production of Neil Simon’s hilarious and moving comedy The Sunshine Boys.
Kings of comedy, Willie Clark (Danny DeVito) and Al Lewis (Richard Griffiths)
aka ‘The Sunshine Boys’ haven’t spoken to each other in years.
When CBS call for the vaudevillian greats to be re-united for a television special, past grudges resurface as they take centre stage once more. Ageing ailments aside, can this legendary double-act overcome their differences for one last show?
Old rivalry and vintage hilarity abound in this classic comedy of showbiz and friendship.
Directed by Thea Sharrock, who won the Olivier Award last year for her
production of After The Dance at The National Theatre, The Sunshine Boys
is the theatrical event of the year.
