Playwright Neil Simon is best known for his unique mix of humor and heart. From The Odd Couple to his autobiographical series which includes Brighton Beach Memoirs, Simon writes about men and women who often must first learn to love themselves before they can love one another.
One of Neil Simon's best-loved plays is The Sunshine Boys, which is being presented throughout the month of March by The Arizona Theatre Company. Joining AZ Illustrated Arts Elizabeth Burden to talk about the play are the stars, veteran stage and screen actors David Green and Peter Van Norden.
Arizona Theatre Company's production of Neil Simon's The Sunshine Boys, directed by David Ira Goldstein, plays at The Temple of Music and Art in Tucson through Saturday, March 23rd, 2013. The show then travels to Phoenix for performances from March 28th through April 14th, 2013.
David Green plays Al Lewis and Peter Van Norden plays Willie Clark in this scene from The Sunshine Boys, as the two estranged comedy partners struggle against awkward silence as they meet again for the first time in many years.
