The Odd Couple - 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.

A pandemic may be an odd time to debut a play, but that's what The Perkins Players did. Their first play -- a comedy partially about the tensions that arise when two very different people live in close proximity to each other -- was performed in front of audience members who had very likely spent a significant part of the past few months being forced to live in close quarters with other humans (except for anyone who lives by themselves). Would that make audience members relate or yearn for an escape about anything except being trapped together in one apartment?

Back in that age we call golden, Broadway marquees were frequently set ablaze by long-running plays that producers looking to turn a profit lovingly referred to as boulevard comedies. These were typically middlebrow laugh machines expertly crafted by the likes of Mary Chase, Neil Simon or Abe Burrows (Think HARVEY, THE ODD COUPLE or CACTUS FLOWER), involving contemporary everyday characters in realistic situations containing just enough sentiment to make you care about what happens next, while maybe even wrapping up with an uncontroversial, heartwarming message.
