BWW Review: THE ODD COUPLE at Vagabond Theatre is Full of Wit and Snark
by Kristen Price - Apr 12, 2017

The Odd Couple at the Vagabond Theatre, from start to finish was a pretty perfect production full of misfits and lovable rogues. Felix played by Eric C. Stein and Oscar played by Larry Malkus were standouts, which is good since the entire show rests solely - and comfortably - on their shoulders. Throughout the production, I felt these 2 actors looked so much like and spoke so much like the Oscar and Felix I had imagined when I read the play a few years ago. Each actor was hilarious and completely committed to their own ridiculousness. They even managed to make it look as though they had lived in that New York apartment with 8 rooms their entire adult lives. (more...)
