From Broadway

Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same.
"Very funny indeed." - New York Post

"Endearing." - USA Today

The female version of The Odd Couple was first presented on Broadway by Emanuel Azenberg, Wayne M. Rogers, and The Shubert Organization at the Broadhurst Theatre on June 11, 1985. It was directed by Gene Saks.

The play is fast moving and funny.  The set was easy to design.  The audience loved this play.

This play is one of the most fun shows for a troupe heavy on women to do! I had the pleasure of playing "Olive" with an associate theater company and loved every line. It is great for little theater. The set is a relatively simple interior that can be worked on virtually any stage. The dialogue - well, it's Neil Simon, what more need be said? Virtually a laugh on every line. The ages can be somewhat flexible, which is also nice. Do it and expect to have a lot fun!
