The New Jewish Theatre opens its nineteenth season with the Neil Simon comedy "The Sunshine Boys," a sweet tribute to the era of vaudeville that's also an honest look at aging in an American culture increasingly focused on youth. Engaging performances and a pleasantly amusing script ensure this show is entertaining even for audiences with no recollection of the uniquely American variety of entertainment known as vaudeville.

If Beirut blends European folk with pop, and Gogol Bordello blends gypsy with punk, then Yard Dogs Road Show completes this triumvirate straddling old and new worlds with its perfect marriage of wild-west burlesque and 21st century indie rock.
