Jewish Family Theatre presents THE SUNSHINE BOYS
Opening Night – Wednesday, May 4th at 7:30 p.m.
This comic story follows the attempt by a young theatrical agent to re-unite his elderly uncle, a former vaudevillian great, with his long-time stage partner for a TV reunion. The two old men have not spoken in twelve years and have numerous issues to work out before they are ready to return to the public eye. As always, Neil Simons’ deft touch with both comedy and sentiment make this a delight for the whole family.
