Rivertown Theaters presents A Gender-Bending Neil Simon's THE ODD COUPLE
Rivertown Theaters does it again with yet another laugh-filled, and unique offering that will appeal to all types of theatergoers when the company presents both Neil Simon's award winning plays, The Odd Couple, in repertory performances running Nov. 2 - 19, 2017.
Neil Simon's classic comedy about two mismatched roommates, has enjoyed countless revivals, three TV series and a hit film testifying to the sure-fire hilarity of The Odd Couple. Filled with one-liners, slapstick comedy and likeable characters, Rivertown Theaters is delivering a one-two punch by presenting the male AND female versions. two different scripts, both written by Neil Simon. Watch the same casts flip roles and switch places as they perform the two different versions throughout the run, proving that gender has nothing to do with being a bad roommate, or a great friend. Audiences can pick and choose their preferred version and are encouraged to come back a second time to experience both shows. We will offer a special "combo package" ticket price for the two-timers (See below)! Director Ricky Graham will bring his comedic expertise to the poker game (male) and Trivial Pursuit night (female), assuring a night full of laughter for all.
