Photos: Danny DeVito & Richard Griffiths rehearse Sunshine Boys

By • West End
Photographs have today (12 April 2012) been released showing Hollywood star Danny DeVito and West End stalwart Richard Griffiths in rehearsal for Neil Simon's comedy The Sunshine Boys which opens at the Savoy Theatre on 17 May 2012 (previews from 27 April 2012).

The comedy, which premiered on Broadway in 1972 and was adapted into a 1975 film starring George Burns and Walter Matthau, is directed by Thea Sharrock and is booking for a strictly limited run until 28 July 2012

The Sunshine Boys focuses on Al Lewis (Griffiths) and Willy Clark (DeVito), a vaudevillian team who grew to hate each other and never spoke to each other off-stage during the final months of their 40-year act.

The pair are reunited for a television special on the history of comedy, with much of show's humour derived from efforts to get the two cantankerous actors into the same room for rehearsals.

Joining DeVito and Griffiths as the ageing vaudevillian team are Rebecca Blackstone, Nick Blakeley, Peter Cadden, Johnnie Fiori, Adam Levy and William Maxwell.
