Pistarckle Presents 'The Odd Couple'

Aug. 7, 2008 – Neil Simon's comedy "The Odd Couple," directed by Marc Fellner-Erez, will have six performances at Pistarckle Theater. They will be shown at 8 p.m., on Aug. 14, 15, 16, 22 and 23, and at 2 p.m., on Aug. 23. It stars Elgin Gordon as Felix and Damien Cardle as Oscar.
Originally conceived by Neil Simon, who based the play on his brother Danny's true-life experience, the play's concept is best described in the one-sentence treatment Simon submitted to Paramount, who financed the stage play sight-unseen: The play is about two men–one divorced and one estranged and neither quite sure why they are having the same conflicts and fights they had in their marriages.
The New York Times says, "His skill is not only great but constantly growing…. There is scarcely a moment that is not hilarious."
"Fresh, richly hilarious and remarkably original. Wildly, irresistibly, incredibly and continuously funny."-N.Y. Daily News.
Buy $10 tickets at half price before July 30. After July 30, all tickets are $20. Call the box 0ffice 775-7877.
