The Odd Couple - 1985 - Broadway

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.
