The Odd Couple - 1985 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Arizona Broadway Theatre proudly adds another classic

play to its production roster. The Odd Couple, the Tony

Award-winning masterpiece by Neil Simon, had its debut

in 1965. Felix Ungar, a neurotic, neat freak news writer

– having been thrown out by his wife – moves in with

his friend Oscar Madison, a messy sportswriter. The

Broadway play ran for nearly 1,000 performances and

inspired not only a successful film, but also the TV series

starring Tony Randall and Jack Klugman.

What did our critic think of THE ODD COUPLE-THE FEMALE VERSION at Little Theatre Of Mechanicsburg?

The classic comedy by Neil Simon, tells the story of bickering roommates, lifelong friendships, and second chances. Nancy Meister stars as the messy and carefree Oliver Madison-a woman long on sports knowledge and short on patience. Andrea Stephenson plays the uptight, fussbudget, Felicia Unger.
