The Sunshine Boys

September 11, 2013 — Leave a comment

The laughter hits the ceiling when Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Danny DeVito joins Tony Award and Emmy Award winner Judd Hirsch to tear it up in this outrageous new production of the Neil Simon’s classic The Sunshine Boys.

In The Sunshine Boys, Willie Clark (DeVito) and Al Lewis (Hirsch) are former vaudevillian stars who, after a partnership of over 40 years, are no longer speaking to each other.  When a lucrative television offer for one last show lures them into a grudging reunion, sparks fly in this classic comedy of showbiz and friendship. DeVito and Hirsch are reuniting on the Ahmanson stage 30 years after they both starred in the landmark television series “Taxi.”

The Sunshine Boys “… celebrates the clown’s classic gift for turning anger into art,” said Ben Brantley of The New York Times. “Willie Clark … has a carved-in-stone list of things that are funny. Words that have “k” sounds, for instance, like pickle and cake and cucumber. Might I add to that list the image of a tufted Danny DeVito in striped pajamas and a sports jacket? … That’s comedy, folks. And it’s one of the reasons that Thea Sharrock’s production of ‘The Sunshine Boys’ works so incredibly well.”

The Sunshine Boys by Simon,

The Sunshine Boys is playing at the Ahmanson Theatre that for over 40 years has presented a wide variety of dramas, musicals, comedies, and classic revivals.

Contrary to the standard salad bar and pizza menu traditionally served at children’s fun places, Kids Castle continually updates the restaurant menu to include entrees such as fresh seafood, crisp salads, and gourmet burgers. For kids, they offer an affordable variety of items, such as macaroni and cheese, grilled chicken strips, and mini burgers.

Back by “Popular” demand! Variety calls Wicked “a cultural phenomenon,” and when it last played at the Segerstorm Center for the Arts, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy® and three Tony Awards®, Wicked is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times).

Long before Dorothy dropped in, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious, and very popular. How these two unlikely friends end up as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch makes for the most spellbinding new musical in years and makes for “the most complete— and completely satisfying—new musical in a long time” (USA Today).

w20

Wicked is a musical that opened on Broadway at the Gershwin Theater October 30, 2003. It is touted as the untold story of the witches of Oz and is loosely based on the best-selling novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire. The musical features music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman. With musical staging by Tony Award winner Wayne Cilento, Wicked is directed by Tony winner Joe Mantello.

Segerstrom Center for the Arts is among the nation’s premier cultural institutions, presenting a broad range of world-class performances and innovative education programs to an increasingly diverse, enthusiastic, and growing audience on its multi-venue campus. World premieres, free performances, festivals, workshops, and other programs invite you to explore the arts in new ways – a place of innovation and tradition where creativity, culture, and community connect.
