The show runs June 13-16 and 20-22.
Lewis & Clark were one of the great Vaudeville comedy teams. On-stage, they went together like peanut butter and jelly. Off-stage, they were like oil and water. They kept it together for forty-three years until Al Lewis suddenly split up the act and retired. Now, eleven years later, CBS has made them an offer to reunite and be a part of their History of Comedy TV special. Convinced by Willie’s long-suffering agent/nephew, Ben, they agree to give it a try. What will happen when these two stubborn, aging comics get together again? Neil Simon’s hilarious and poignant script provides these answers and much more.
Directed by Carl Ellison, with: Dennis Platte as Willie Clark, Rick Katon as Al Lewis, and Brad Peters as Ben Silverman. Also starring Wendy Ascione-Juska, Chris Grimm, Janet Rich and Brian Evely.
