The laughter hits the ceiling when Danny DeVito and Judd Hirsch – together for the first time since starring in the landmark television series “Taxi” – tear it up in this outrageous new production of the Neil Simon classic. This U.S. premiere direct from London directed by Olivier Award winner Thea Sharrock stokes the heart and tickles the funny bone in a comedy about show business and the true measure of friendship.
At the pinnacle of Vaudeville, Willie Clark (DeVito) and Al Lewis (Hirsch) were the undisputed Kings of Comedy before splitting unceremoniously. When Clark’s nephew, Ben (Justin Bartha), gets a lucrative television offer for Lewis and Clark to give one last show, the two are lured into a grudging reunion and sparks fly in this classic comedy of showbiz and friendship.
Joining Danny DeVito and Judd Hirsch are film and television actors Justin Bartha (The Hangover, Broadway's Lend Me A Tenor), Annie Abrams (True Blood), Matthew Bohrer (The Jump), Benjamin Burdick (Arrested Development), Gibby Brand (Desperate Housewives), Johnnie Fiori (Powder Room), Frank Kopyc (Parks and Recreation) and PaSean Wilson (Scary or Die).
