Photo Flash: First Look at Jerry Adler and Richard Kline in CT Rep's THE SUNSHINE BOYS, Beg. Tonight

‚Äč

THE SUNSHINE BOYS by Neil Simon, the second show of its three-show Summer Nutmeg Summer Series at Connecticut Repertory Theatre is onstage tonight, June 19-29 in the Harriet S. Jorgensen Theater, Storrs. The Neil Simon penned comedy is led by Broadway and Television veterans Jerry Adler as Willie Clark and Richard Kline as Al Lewis. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

They are joined by Broadway stars Tina Fabrique (Ragtime, Bring...Funk, How To Suceed...), Sara Andreas (Catch Me If You Can) and UConn alum Richard Ruiz (National Tours of Sweet Charity, Urinetown and CRT's Man of La Mancha) will play Ben Silverman. The cast also includes Steve Hayes(CRT's Seussical: The Musical, Man of La Mancha and The Pirates of Penzance), Thomas Brazzle (CRT's Three Musketeers, Romeo and Juliet, Legally Blonde: The Musical) and Conor Donnally. The production is directed by CRT's Artistic Director, Vincent J. Cardinal.

Tony Award nominee Jerry Adler returns to the CRT stage, along with TV's Richard Kline, in his CRT debut. Jerry Adler, of The Soprano's, Rescue Me, and The Good Wife, was last seen on CRT's stage in 2012's hysterical world-premiere of I'm Connecticut by The Simpsons writer Michael Reiss. Richard Kline, best known for playing Larry Dallas on the television sitcom Three's Company, made his Broadway debut in City of Angels and was featured as The Wizard in the first national tour of WICKED.

The Sunshine Boys affectionately and hilariously tells the story of Lewis and Clark, vaudeville's undisputed Kings of Comedy, as they reunite an once-in-a-lifetime television special. The only problem is they haven't spoken in 40 years and the shtick hits the fan when old grudges begin horning in on the act. The play opened on Broadway in 1972, and was made into a film in 1975 starring Walter Matthau and George Burns.

The Design team includes: Tim Brown, Scenic Designer; Lisa Loen, Costume Designer; Greg Purnell, Lighting Designer; Geoffrey Borronda, Stage Manager and Mike Skinner, Sound Designer.

Performances begin tonight, June 19 and run through June 29 at the Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre on the UConn campus in Storrs, CT. For tickets and information, call 860-486-2113 and visit www.crt.uconn.edu.
