Now that he's gotten his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Danny DeVito is ready to say goodbye to La La Land, and hello to London!
We've just learned that Danny DeVito will be starring in a West End production of Neil Simon's The Sunshine Boys, which starts up preview performances on April 27 at the Savoy Theatre! The official opening of the show's 12-week run is May 17.
Best part? Harry Potter actor Richard Griffiths (Vernon Dursley) will co-star with Danny!!!!
For those who haven never seen the play, here's how it's being described by Playbill:
"In the play, kings of comedy, Willie Clark (DeVito) and Al Lewis (Griffiths), aka The Sunshine Boys, haven’t spoken to each other in years. When CBS calls for the vaudevillian greats to be reunited for a nostalgic History of Comedy, past grudges resurface as they take center stage once more. Aging ailments aside, can this legendary double-act overcome their differences for one last show?"
Sounds like it should be a wonderful show! We wish Uncle Vernon and The Lorax the best of luck! Ha!
