The classic mismatch between button-down neatnik Felix and rumpled, sloppy Oscar was a hit movie and TV series, but it all started with this play by the legendary Neil Simon.
I play Roy, one of Oscar’s friends and a regular at his weekly Friday night poker game along with Murray the cop, Vinnie and “Speed”. I’m also his accountant, which lets me scold him for his bad money-management skills!
The show starts on Friday night, October 29th, and runs for three weeks – Thursday through Saturday night, and Sunday afternoon at 2.
We’re in the home stretch of rehearsals and it is shaping up to be quite a show, with Rob Stover and Adrian Maxwell striking comedy sparks galore as the leads, and the rest of the poker ensemble – plus the “Pigeon sisters” – all in fine form in this fast-paced, laugh-filled play.
All safety protocals will be in place, including distancing and vaccine passport requirements. So you can rest easy and settle in to enjoy the show!
If you can, I hope you’ll come out and see “The Odd Couple”!
