Sly Fox Summary

In the hilarious comedy Sly Fox, Foxwell J. Sly and his servant Simon Able, are two devious conmen out to rob from the rich to give to themselves. It's the dawn of the Gold Rush in San Francisco, and with everyone falling over themselves with gold fever, Foxwell and his trusty assistant set out to swindle as many as they can. The smash-hit of the 1976 Broadway season and for many a high point in stage comedy, Sly Fox is written by Larry Gelbart ("M*A*S*H," City of Angels and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum) and directed by the legendary Arthur Penn (Bonnie and Clyde, The Miracle Worker, Broadway's recent Fortune's Fool), and features a an all-star cast.
