London (PRUnderground) February 3rd, 2012

Catch Hollywood legend Danny DeVito on stage in the West End by booking London theatre breaks to see ‘The Sunshine Boys’ with Hotel Direct.

Directed by Thea Sharrock, The Sunshine Boys will open at the Savoy Theatre on May 17th 2012 and will run till July 28th 2012. Previews for the show start on April 27th which are also available to book as part of Hotel Direct’s London theatre breaks.

The show stars Danny DeVito as Willie Clark and Richard Griffiths as Al Lewis, who are two aging former entertainers who were once part of vaudevillian double act. Over the years the pair grew to hate each other and fell out over one of them wanting to retire and split up the duo. Willie and Al are brought together once again to star in a television special that focuses on the bitter pair trying to work together once again.

The Sunshine Boys was originally played on Broadway in 1972, has seen a film and TV adaption and now is being revived for the West End stage for a 12 week limited run. The show was created by Neil Simpson, produced by Sonia Friedman Productions and Richard Willis, designed by Hildegard Bechtler, sound by Ian Dickson and lighting by Neil Austin.

This will be Danny De Vito’s West End stage debut, but many will know him from his huge back catalogue of movies including Twins, Batman Returns and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Richard Griffiths who is best known for his role in Pie in the Sky is no stranger to the stage and has starred in the History Boys, the Habit of art and Equus.
