ABOUT THE SHOW
This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assembled for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean-freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.

"[Simon's] skill is not only great but constantly growing...There is scarcely a moment that is not hilarious."
- The New York Times
"Fresh, richly hilarious and remarkably original. Wildly, irresistibly, incredibly and continuously funny."
