DIRECTED BY L. Douglas Bord-Pire
Attic theatre will open the 67th season with an old friend,
Neil Simon’s THE SUNSHINE BOYS.
First produced by Attic in 1989, The Sunshine Boys tells the story of a friendship on the rocks. Al and Willie as "Lewis and Clark" were top-billed vaudevillians for over forty years. Now they aren't even speaking. When CBS requests them for a "History of Comedy" retrospective, a grudging reunion brings the two back together, along with a flood of memories, miseries and laughs.
"It's ham on wry...Simon's sure footed craftsmanship and his one liners are as exquisitely apt as ever." -New York Post
You won’t want to miss this classic comedy sure to sell out!!
June 7th to June 16th.
Meet the Director:
L. Douglas Bord-Pire has been on the stage for Attic in past seasons as an actor but is now stepping off the stage to direct Neil Simon’s Sunshine Boys. Past directing credits include Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, Atomic Summer, Almost Maine, and Calendar Girls. Doug feels that directing is the natural progression for him. He recognized that he would always have an opinion (using his inside voice) as an actor on stage as to what he would do as a director. What a great opportunity to be able to flex that voice now directing a show form one of his favorite playwrights, Neil Simon.
