Description

Twenty years after The Odd Couple’s original Broadway debut, Neil Simon breathed new life into his play by rewriting it for two women, morphing the characters of Oscar Madison and Felix Ungar, into Olive Madison, originated by actress Rita Moreno and Florence Unger, originated by actress Sally Struthers. The new version of the play had a successful two-year run on Broadway. Simon made it more female-friendly by changing the weekly poker games at home into Trivial Pursuit games. In the original male version of the play, the upstairs “giggly” Pigeon sisters, airline stewardesses who Oscar and Felix dated occasionally became two Latin men named Manolo Costazuela and Jesus Costazuela, who worked as administrators for a Spanish airline, in the female version.

By Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-Winner Neil Simon

Directed by Al Rossi
