The Odd Couple, Female Version by Neil Simon

Arts and Culture Center - Barbara Barrett Theatre - March 9-12, 2016

Review:     The Telegram

The play takes place in New York City and Unger and Madison are at it again--Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's contemporary comic classic: the female version of 'The Odd Couple.' Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Costazuela brothers--but the hilarity remains the same.

The only thing different from the first time the original The Odd Couple debuted back in 1965 is the sexes. The story, the one-liners the people are just as memorably hysterically and fun. Simon must have had a clue on how outrageously funny and entertaining it would be for two women to live together without killing one another.
