This classic Neil Simon comedy is the story of two top-billed vaudevillians, Al and Willie, The Sunshine Boys, who worked together 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. Besides remastering their sketch, the two men have numerous issues to work out before they are ready to return to the public eye. This hilarious comedy was a celebrated 1975 film starring two of America’s great legends, George Burns and Walter Matthau.

Jhenna Quinn Lewis & Ann Kraft Walker Join Art Exhibition at Insight Gallery
May 7-28, during regular business hours
"Be Still". Art lovers will rejoice in this collaboration that combines the photo realistic still life work of Ann Kraft Walker and the sublimely detailed and delicate avian still life works of Jhenna Quinn Lewis. Walker, drawing from her strong faith, paints detailed antiques and everyday objects with magnificence. Lewis, inspired by the Japanese masters, employs the tenants of wabi-sabi, which recognizes the poignant beauty in the imperfect, the impermanent and in austerity. She says, "By removing all that is unnecessary in my compositions and exercising restraint and simplicity, I invite the viewer to slow down. Be patient and look. I believe this is why my works impart a meditative feeling." Together, the artists will bring a show aimed to bring introspection and joy to the viewer by celebrating some of life's purest and most simple yet beautiful moments.
Opening reception on May 7 from 6 to 8 pm during First Friday Art Walk Fredericksburg.
