It’s been almost 30 years since Neil Simon reversed the genders of the characters in The Odd Couple from Oscar and Felix to Olive and Florence. And now…it’s time to meet the ladies!
There’s a laugh a second in Neil Simon’s hit comedy that lit up Broadway for more than two years. A foolproof comic situation (allegedly based on a chapter in the life of Simon’s brother Danny) is kept alive and healthy by some of the funniest dialogue ever written. For all its over-familiarity, this is a great play, easily Simon’s best.
