Maybe you thought Lewis and Clark were explorers in 19th-century America. But if you’re a theater fan, you know about Al Lewis and Willy Clark, a one-time vaudeville team and the central characters in Neil Simon’s 1972 classic comedy The Sunshine Boys. They worked together onstage for 40 years and grew to hate each other.

After retiring, they are asked to reunite for a TV special about the history of comedy. But they can hardly stand to share a rehearsal space or a stage. Lots of laughs. 

7:30 p.m. Thursdays; 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; 2 p.m. Sundays. Through June 29. $24; $21 seniors/students. Covedale Center for the Performing Arts, 4990 Glenway Ave., 513-241-6550, cincinnatilandmarkproductions.com.
