When the mysterious and sultry Vanda walks into playwright Thomas Novachek's office, he thinks the search for the perfect lead in his latest production might finally be over. But her audition quickly turns into a seductive and erotic power play that'll make you wonder who's really running the show.

Quotes & Highlights
- The original Broadway production of <em>The Odd Couple</em> ran for more than two years and 964 performances.
Set in a quintessential 8-room New York apartment, an unlikely pair of middle-aged roommates battle each other’s glaring quirks while being forced to reflect on their own. Oscar Madison, a carefree slob, and Felix Ungar, a neurotic neat freak, are thrown into sharing a home when their own are torn apart by divorce.
Reality sets in when Felix's Mary Poppins lifestyle destroys the laid-back vibe of Oscar's ultimate bachelor pad. This is a story of a friendship that defies all odds made its Broadway debut in 1965, won several Tony Award, including Best Play, and went on to great success in film and television.
“The Odd Couple is a face-paced, neurosis-filled brawl of a play,” says director Jim Ward. “Two friends have never been closer or farther apart – their polar opposite personalities fuel some of the most hysterical theater ever written.”
The cast includes Michael Lederman as Oscar Madison, Doug Mallon as Felix Ungar, Roxane Ashe as Cecily Pigeon, Patti Appel as Gwendolyn Pigeon, Steve Travis and Joe Guistano as Speed, John Szabo as Murray, Jack Weintraub as Roy, and Bob Mitton as Vinnie.
