Event Details

Al and Willie as “Lewis and Clark” were top-billed vaudevillians for over forty years.  Now they aren’t even speaking.  When CBS requests them for a “History of Comedy” retrospective, a grudging reunion brings the two back together, along with a flood of memories, miseries, and laughs.  The play has echoes of Simon's greatest hit, “The Odd Couple,” with enduring chemistry, crotchety remarks and laughs.


Reviews:
·      "It's ham on wry [...] Simon's sure footed craftsmanship and his one liners are as exquisitely apt as ever." - New York Post
·      "Delicious and oddly affecting." - The New York Times
·      "Another hit for Simon in a shrewdly balanced, splendid and rather touching slice of the show biz life." - New York Daily News


Awards:
·      1973 Tony winner – Best Direction of a play
·      1973 Tony nominations – Best Actor, Best Play
