I attended a "preview" production and my expectation were fairly low. I was pleasantly surprised. The actor's timing was good and their energy level was high. I only observed a couple of flubs, but overwise I was quite pleased. I enjoy the...continued

I think this play is very good, but it's important not to narrow your expectation to the movie. Felix is slightly overweight which is something you wouldn't expect from a character that is known for perfection. What he lacks in physical...continued

This was the first preview. There were only a few times when lines were flubbed. The actor playing Oscar Madison was so energetic & animated! Overall, all the actors did a great job! Set design was interesting. Lighting & sound ran without a...continued

A fun evening in a nice, intimate theater. Typical Neil Simon shtick, well acted. Enjoyed the staging. Easy free, parking.

Acting was ok, timing wasn't good, not snappy enough. Oscar was not as sharp as he could have been. And we've been conditioned to a slender Felix...perhaps this casting was a way to break through the old paradigm, but Felix is supposed to be so...continued

Horribly over-acted. Only highlights were the sisters who lived upstairs and the sexy accountant guy... yum. The actor playing Oscar Madison gave new meaning to the words Scene chewer! The crew at Raven were very cool and the theatre is very nice...continued

Raven Theater always puts on a good production. Good set design and acting. I thought the cop and Felix did a fantastic job.

I loved The Odd Couple! Everyone was excellent. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting based on the movie and Felix did not look like what I expected. The laughs were great and the running around on stage was crazy fun! I really like The Raven...continued

Great work by the Raven! It was funny, poignant, and presented very tongue-in-cheek. This is the right kind of setting for this play - acknowledging that we all know it and know the story, but appreciate a good telling of the tale. I highly...continued

Being that we hadn't seen the movie for years, but had seen it several times, we expected something campy. We were very pleasantly surprised. The acting was fantastic and we couldn't believe how quickly the time went. The intermission was very...continued

Having not seen the film or the TV show I really didn't know what to expect from this production. However I was very pleasantly surprised. The acting was good and it was amusing throughout. The star of the show for me was the set which was just...continued

The Odd Couple was well acted and their timing was fantastic. I especially was amazed at the 60's stage setting in keeping with the articles and concepts of the time. It was good comedy and most enjoyable.
