PRESS RELEASE: The Sunshine Boys
Al and Willie as “Lewis and Clark” were top-billed vaudevillians for more than forty years. Now they aren’t even speaking. When CBS requests them for a “History of Comedy” retrospective, a grudging reunion brings the two back together one last time. Featuring veteran Keegan company members Kevin Adams and Timothy H. Lynch, Neil Simon’s The Sunshine Boys explores the memories, miseries, and laughs of a lifelong relationship in this comic and ultimately touching story.
The Sunshine Boys reunites Keegan company members Timothy H. Lynch and Kevin Adams. Michael Innocenti directs, with a cast that features Peter Finnegan, William Aitken, Maria Rizzo, Nello DeBlasio, and Kecia Campbell. The press opening is Tuesday, October 1 at 8:00pm. The Sunshine Boys runs through October 19.
“It’s ham on wry. Simon’s surefooted craftsmanship and his one liners are as exquisitely apt as ever.” –The New York Post
…an affectionate, convulsingly funny, touching comedy; one of the best plays of Neil Simon’s phenomenal career.” –Variety
This is Keegan Theatre’s 17th season in Washington, DC. After purchasing the Church Street Theater earlier this year, the venue was renamed the Andrew Keegan Theatre.
