"The Sunshine Boys" 2 tickets at The Round Barn Theatre
The Sunshine Boys
October 16 - Nov 3rd
Lewis and Clark were once a successful vaudevillian comedy duo known as The Sunshine Boys. During the later years of their 43-year run, animosity between the partners grew to the point where they ceased to speak with each other. Willie Clark, now an old man struggling with memory loss, reluctantly accepts an offer from a talent agent, to reunite with Al Lewis for one more show. Thanks to the urging of Al’s daughter, the two decide to go through with the performance. One of Neil Simon’s most beloved comedies will find you reminiscing with the old friends as they try to recapture their glory days and, perhaps, rebuild their troublesome friendship.
Transformations, like the crawling caterpiller becomes a graceful butterfly, happen before audience’s eyes in all seven main stage musicals and comedy. From “Life Could Be A Dream” to “Beauty And The Beast” the season highlights how the human spirit can evolve, improve or reconcile. “Life Could Be a Dream” follows a group of young boys who become singing stars; Papa Yoder, the patriarch of “Plain and Fancy”, in its 33rd season admits that “we grow too soon old and too late schmart”, “Freaky Friday” is brought to stage to show a mother and daughter learn to appreciate each other, Mark Twain’s Huck Finn learns along the “Big River” to love and accept all people, “Anne Of Green Gables” grows into a studious young woman and changes those around her and “The Sunshine Boys” rekindle their long broken friendship. The Holiday show, the long awaited revival of “Beauty And The Beast,” is the ultimate transformation that love can bring.
