Both DeVito and Hirsch know how to get laughs, but this production utterly misses the real heart of the piece. I felt nothing about their friendship nor the terror and anxiety of losing one's vitality as one ages. It's in the play - actually a...continued

It was an entertaining evening and a funny story. Danny DeVito in particular was on stage for nearly the entire performance and was great in his role. I had not seen the movie but I was very satisfied with the production.

Great to see Danny DeVito and Judd Hirsch together. Neil Simon's play, while dated, is still funny. Danny Devito was awesome. Judd Hirsch seemed a little off the night I went, but was still fun.

Not bad. Some fun bits and some darker bit. Some of the humor went on too long.

We had such a fun time. The seats were great. The show was fantastic. "EN-TAH!!!!" DeVito and Hirsch looked like they were having such a fun time together on stage, and it was fun to see Justin Bartha! Great casting, and a funny, funny, show!

The play was exactly as expected - entertaining, sweet, and honestly a little bit dated. But we really enjoyed seeing beloved actors in endearing roles.

The Sunshine Boys was great! Danny and Judd are terrific together. And, our seats were front row mezzanine center. Could not have been better!

Loved the play. Danny DeVito was fantastic. Judd Hirsch was excellent as well. All I can say is funny, funny and more funny.

This was my first experience in buying tickets through Goldstar because I was afraid that the seats would be terrible. A...continued

The play was very funny. It was great to see Danny Devito and Judd Hersh working together again. There were several laugh-out-loud funny parts to the play.

The play was a bit slow at times, but it was great to see Danny Divto and Judd Hisch together again. Some good laughs here and there, and great seats from Goldstar.

We were so looking forward to going, but found this show so disappointing. The two main actors are great talents, no doubt, but the characters, especially De Vito's Willie Clark is so difficult, annoying, and self-destructive. It's painful to...continued

This show is awesome. All the actors brought their A game. It was so funny that you might miss some of the jokes for laughing too hard. The Ahmanson Theater is lovely and very comfortable and parking is easy to find. I can't say enough anout...continued
