The Odd Couple
Among the most-performed comedies of the 20th century, Neil Simon’s 1965 Broadway hit is about two recently divorced men – the slob sportswriter Oscar Madison and the neat, uptight Felix Ungar – who become unlikely roommates in a New York City apartment. The play spawned a hit movie (with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau), a long-running TV series (starring Jack Klugman and Tony Randall) and even a stage adaptation that turned Felix and Oscar into women named Florence and Olive.
The Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre performs its eighth season of Script-in-Hand – a series of classic comedies called Exit Laughing.
