SHANE JACOBSON AND TODD McKENNEY STAR IN NEIL SIMON’S THE ODD COUPLE

Comedy masters Shane Jacobson and Todd McKenney are the definitive Odd Couple in Neil Simon’s Tony Award-winning comedy of friendship, divorce and misunderstandings.

Stage and screen stars Lucy Durack and Penny McNamee add to the hilarity as Cecily Pigeon and Gwendolyn Pigeon, the giggly pair of English sisters who live upstairs from Oscar. The poker loving friends of Oscar will be played by John Batchelor, Laurence Coy, Jamie Oxenbould and Anthony Taufa, with Berynn Schwerdt and Hayden Spencer as understudies.

It started as a play and Broadway laughed. A movie and a TV series followed and the whole world laughed. Now, laugh all over again with this hilarious new Australian stage production of The Odd Couple.

Felix and Oscar, two divorced men, decide to share an apartment. The only problem is they’re as different as chalk and cheese.

Australia’s stage legends Shane Jacobson (Kenny, Hairspray) and Todd McKenney (WICKED, Hairspray, Shrek) will leave you in stitches as Shane plays Oscar the cigar smoking compulsive slob and Todd plays the hyper-allergic pernickety Felix. Don’t miss the most famous mismatched duo in comedy history. The characteristics that drove each of them to leave their wives soon have them at each other’s throats in this classic comedy.

SCARCELY A MOMENT THAT IS NOT HILARIOUS.
