The Garfield Center for the Arts at the Prince Theatre and Hugh Gregory Gallagher Theatre partner for comedy, presenting Neil Simon’s The Sunshine Boys for one performance only, Saturday, October 24 at 8pm.
Simon’s comedic play features aging Al Lewis and Willie Clark, a one-time vaudevillian team known as “Lewis and Clark” who, not only grew to hate each other but never spoke to each other off-stage their final year together. The obstinate Clark, who was not ready for retirement, resented the shrewder Lewis for breaking up the act when he opted to leave show business. Hilarity ensues when there is an effort to reunite the two for a TV special on the history of comedy. This reluctant reunion brings the two back together, along with a flood of memories, miseries and laughs.
Neil Simon authored Barefoot in the Park, The Odd Couple, Biloxi Blues, Brighton Beach Memoirs, Chapter Two, and numerous other plays and film adaptations. Simon received a Tony Award nomination for Best Play for The Sunshine Boys. Director, Ed Langrell provides a talented cast to perform the hysterics, Craig Brittingham is Al Lewis and Brian McGunigle as Willie Clark . Erik Murray is Willie Clark’s nephew, Ben Silverman. John Norton portrays Eddie, the TV assistant. Sharon Gilroy is the and Nicole Millette appear as the nurses.
