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, yet moving play 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 nostalgic History of Comedy, 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 last year won the Olivier Award for her production of After The Dance at The National Theatre, The Sunshine Boys looks set to be the theatrical event of the year.
