Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple, the story of the mismatched roommates Oscar Madison and Felix Ungar, has delighted audiences on Broadway (1965-1967), in movie theaters (1968), on television (1970-1975), and on stages around the country (1970-Present).
After Felix is thrown out of his house after twelve years of marriage, Oscar takes him in and gives him a place to live. There’s a big problem, though. Oscar is an easygoing, sloppy sort of guy who enjoys life and doesn’t mind living in a dirty apartment. Felix, on the other hand, is an up-tight, neurotic neat freak who can’t stand any kind of dirt or disorder. The clash of wills is both inevitable and hilarious.
The Adobe Theater’s production of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple features Vern Poitras as Oscar and George Williams as Felix. Their “every-Friday-night” poker buddies are portrayed by Mike Van Ryzin (Murray), Ryan D. Morris (Speed), Jeff Hudson (Roy) and Greg Gardner (Vinnie). Maureen Trujillo and Lacey Bingham round out the cast as the Pigeon sisters, Cecily and Gwendolyn. (Or is that Gwendolyn and Cecily? Oscar never can get it right…).
