‘The Odd Couple’ next up at Lakewood Playhouse

Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple” is the fifth play in the 75th Anniversary Season at Lakewood Playhouse. “With Friends Like Felix… Who Needs Enemies?” Felix and Oscar are an extremely odd couple.  Felix is anal-retentive, neurotic, precise and fastidiously clean. Oscar, on the other hand, is the exact opposite… Sloppy and casual. Can they share an apartment together? Could you?

The Play will be performed on Fridays, Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm.  Performances will be April 18th – May 11th, 2014 with Special Showings at 8:00pm on Thursday, April 24th(Pay What You Can Night) and 8:00pm on Thursday, May 1st (Pay What You Can” Actor’s   Benefit)Our Ticket Prices are $25.00 (General Admission), $22.00 (Military), $21.00 (Seniors) and $19.00 (Students/Educators).

Presented with views from three sides, in the Lakewood Playhouse’s unique “U-Shaped” seating, this production of “The Odd Couple” will drop you right into the middle of Oscar Madison’s New York apartment. The Odd Couple features the Lakewood Playhouse debut of Director Steve Tarry. 

The show consists of a ensemble of Local Comedic Actors that features both new, and returning faces to the Lakewood Playhouse stage from previous productions:  Chris Cantrell (Oscar), Joseph Grant (Roy), Gabriel McClelland (Speed), Jed Slaughter (Murray) and Kadi Burt (Cecily Pigeon).
