Picardo In The Sunshine Boys

1 min read

Robert Picardo and Lee Wilkof will be appearing in a summer production of Neil Simon‘s The Sunshine Boys.

In The Sunshine Boys, “an old Vaudeville team, Lewis (Wilkof) and Clark (Picardo), [is] talked into reuniting for a TV special about the history of comedy. The only problem is the two old men hate each other and haven’t spoken in years! With echoes of The Odd Couple and Simon’s early career as a gag writer for TV, this comedy gets to the heart of what’s funny about real life.”

“Much of the humor is derived from efforts to get the two cantankerous actors into the same room for a rehearsal, their differences of opinion once they reunite, and their shenanigans on the actual broadcast.”

The Sunshine Boys will run from July 9 through July 21 at the Totem Pole Playhouse in Fayetteville, Pennsylvania (between Chambersburg and Gettysburg). Tickets range from $19.95 to $49.50 and can be ordered here.

  1. Sure do wish I could see this! Picardo is one of the best of the Trek actors so I bet it will be fun. Additional trivia – the director is the son of Jean Stapleton, unless it’s a different John Putch
