Kings of comedy, Willie Clark (DeVito) and Al Lewis (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 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?
The Sunshine Boys continues at the Savoy Theatre for a strictly limited run until 28 July 2012. The cast also features Rebecca Blackstone, Nick Blakeley, Peter Cadden, Johnnie Fiori, Adam Levy, Clementine Marlowe-Hunt and William Maxwell.
