9/14/2017

FOREST CITY, IOWA, September 13, 2017 – Waldorf University’s Theatre Department presents The Odd Couple, September 20-23, 2017, in the Smith Theatre in Voss Hall.
 
Two versions of The Odd Couple will be presented. A male version will be presented September 20 and 23, while a female version will run on September 21 and 22.
 
“We are kicking off this new academic year with the hilariously funny, The Odd Couple,” said Waldorf University’s Director of Theatre and Professor Dr. Bob AuFrance. “With the talented students we have, we are presenting both a male and female version of the show. Both will be highly engaging and entertaining!”
 
The Odd Couple is a play by Neil Simon. Following its premiere on Broadway in 1965, the characters were revived in a successful 1968 film and 1970s television series, as well as several other derivative works and spin-offs. The plot concerns two mismatched roommates: the neat, uptight Felix Ungar and the slovenly, easygoing Oscar Madison. Simon adapted the play in 1985 to feature a pair of female roommates, Florence Ungar and Olive Madison, in The Female Odd Couple
