Neil Simon’s classic comedy, “The Odd Couple,” opens as a group of the guys assembles 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 Ungar, 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.
Can two divorced men share an 8-room apartment without driving each other crazy? A Neil Simon classic that inspired the hit TV series.
Having played Oscar in the North End Players’ production in 2011, this time I need to channel my inner neat-freak as Felix Ungar.
