Neil Simon’s The Sunshine Boys is the comedic story of a once-popular vaudeville comedy team known as The Sunshine Boys. After 43 years together, they parted company on not-too-friendly terms when one partner wanted to continue his career and the other wanted to retire.
When a lucrative opportunity comes up with a major TV network more than a decade later, their agent has to try and convince the comedy team to reunite for just this one gig. But first, there are a lot of skeletons to be cleaned out of their closets.
