NEIL SIMON’S PLAY THE SUNSHINE BOYS TAKES
CENTER STAGE AT BROWARD STAGE DOOR THEATRE
The Sunshine Boys play was originally produced on Broadway in 1972 and later adapted for film and television. The story follows the attempt by a young theatrical agent to unite his elderly uncle, a former vaudevillian great, with his long- time stage partner for a TV reunion.
Despite their celebrated reputation, the 2 old men have not spoken in 12 years. Besides remastering their sketch, the 2 men have numerous issues to work out before returning to the public eye. As ex-vaudevillians Lewis and Clark, the plays protagonists, once a successful vaudevillian comedy duo known as the Sunshine Boys, unite for a television special, in spite of the fact that they can’t stand each other either.
The play was revised on Broadway on December 8, 1997 and ran for more than a year after 230 performances and was given a full five star rating. This show glitters, like fireworks on the fourth of July.
Performances run from August 18 to September 24, 2017. Evenings at 8 p.m., matinees 2 p.m., Wednesday to Sunday. Tickets are $48 available at the box office located at 8036 West Sample Road, Coral Springs. For additional information call 954-344-7765.
