By Neil Simon

Industry Nights: Mondays, Oct 16 & 23 at 8pm
This classic comedy discovers what happens when persons of opposite personalities and lifestyles become unlikely roommates. Prolific American playwright Neil Simon brought slovenly Oscar Madison and fastidious Felix Ungar to the stage in 1965, and won the Tony for Best Author of a Play. The Odd Couple went on to become a film and a successful television series. In 1985, Simon revised the play for a female cast in a contemporary setting, in which Olive Madison and Florence Ungar become the mismatched roommates after a marital separation. From a male or female perspective, hilarity results when the worlds of these endearing characters collide! The show will be performed in rep with both male and female versions on opening weekend, and alternating weekends thereafter.
Tickets: $29 ($25 students/seniors)
Special discounted pricing for opening night, Industry Nights, and Wednesday and Thursday performances. Also, enjoy $5 off of each performance ticket if both male and female shows are purchased at the same time by utilizing discount code: ODD5OFF.
