Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play, “The Odd Couple” is a timeless comedy that has spoken to every generation since its premier in 1965.
When Felix Ungar, a neurotic, obsessive neat freak, gets kicked out of his house by his wife, he is welcomed into the home of his best friend Oscar Madison, a slovenly sports writer with a failed marriage of his own. What follows is the inevitable and hilarious result of oil and water trying to live together under the same roof. The friendship moves steadily toward destruction as a result of Felix’s anxieties and reluctance to move on from his past.
“His skill is not only great but constantly growing…There is scarcely a moment that is not hilarious.” –
The New York Times
“Fresh, richly hilarious and remarkably original. Wildly, irresistibly, incredibly and continuously funny.” – The New York Post
