Live theatre thrives in Santa Cruz

by Neil Simon

May 2 - 27, 2018
Directed by Stephen Muterspaugh

This classic comedy, from beloved playwright Neil Simon, centers on two men. The slovenly Oscar Madison, and the neat freak Felix Unger. The action takes place in the apartment of divorcee Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Felix Unger, fastidious, depressed, and none too tense, has just been separated from his wife, and is looking for a place to stay. Hilarity ensues when the clean freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together as The Odd Couple is born. Tony Nominated for Best Play and Winner of Best Author of a Play, 1965.
