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

Ė having been thrown out by his wife Ė 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.

American playwright Neil Simon's prolific and wide-ranging contributions to theater range from the sublime (The Odd Couple and Rumors) to the ridiculous (Fools), with God's Favorite - now onstage through tomorrow - falling somewhere in the middle. While it's not one of the master craftsman's best scripts, it nonetheless is certain to provoke thought and when performed by a talented cast of actors, like it is in its current iteration at The Barn, it is certain to entertain and to evoke an emotional response.
