The Los Altos Stage Company production of Neil Simon’s “The Sunshine Boys” is scheduled to run through Dec. 15 at Bus Barn Theater, 97 Hillview Ave.
A comedic look back at the golden age of vaudeville, “Sunshine” is the story of longtime comedy partners Lewis and Clark, whose career and friendship came to a sudden and acrimonious end.
After a decade of estrangement, Clark’s nephew persuades the former duo to resurrect their most famous routine for a TV special on the history of comedy. Hijinks ensue as the cantankerous coots try to work together despite their longtime feud.
“Sunshine” premiered on Broadway in December 1972 and earned three Tony Award nominations. It was made into a movie in 1975.
Karen Altree Piemme – director of the Red Ladder Theatre Company at San Jose Repertory Theatre – directs the Los Altos Stage Company production.
“Sunshine” features Bill C. Jones (as Willie Clark), Katherine Leyva (Nurse MacKintosh), Al Fischer (Al Lewis), Josh Russell (Ben Silverman), Gordon Meacham (Eddie), Scott Stanley (Patient) and Rene Banks (Registered Nurse).
Performances are scheduled 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays (except today and Thanksgiving) and 3 p.m. Sundays.
Tickets are $18-$32.
