This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed, and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.

Great play, a bit dated, but audiences love it.

I am a fan of Neil Simon's plays, but I've never directed this one.  I'm looking forward to finding the right chemistry, not only between Felix and Oscar, but among their buddies as well.  Simon has given the script such richness of character that both men and women can identify with these people.

Wonderful, well written show.  This will be my 2nd time to direct this.  Love Neil Simon and this is probably my all time favorite of his.
