‘The Odd Couple’ Comes to the Waterville Opera House [INTERVIEW]
One of my all-time favorite movies, is Neil Simon's, 'The Odd Couple!' I have seen the Jack Lemmon/Walter Matthau movie too many times to count. The dialogue is genius and hilarious. I have actually never seen the play live. Now is my chance!
Catch 'The Odd Couple' at the beautiful Waterville Opera House, June 11, 12 and 13 at 7:00 pm and June 14 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for seniors/youth.
The casting for this local production is spot on with Cory King and Bart Shattuck starring in the lead roles. It was a pleasure having them join us on the Moose Morning Show!
If you've never seen the movie or TV shows, here's a quick synopsis from operahouse.org:
Compulsive neatnik Felix Unger is thrown out of his house by his divorce-bound wife. Worried that Felix will try something desperate, his best friend Oscar Madison, himself in the process of being divorced by his wife, invites Felix to move in with him. Within a few days, this mismatched pair is on the verge of mutual murder. Felix cannot abide Oscar's slovenliness, while Oscar is driven insane by Felix's obsession with cleanliness. A foolproof comic situation (allegedly based on a chapter in the life of Neil Simon's brother Danny) is kept alive and healthy by some of the funniest dialogue ever written.
