Book Description

30 Jan 2001
Comedy / 2m, 6f / Int. Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon's hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same. "Very funny indeed." - New York Post "Endearing." - USA Today

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious play 31 Aug 2011
By Leah
Really loved reading this play. It's old fashioned, but so funny. Heard they are doing a revival in London's West End, so I would recommend you go and see it.

This book was a little more worn and torn than I expected, but besides that, it was completely fine. Great script.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Neil Simon's best work 8 Mar 2013
Script arrived a day late but in mint condition. Wanted it for an audition. The play is dated and cringe worthy. I love Neil Simon but this is not anywhere near as good as his original Odd Couple or Barefoot in the Park and The Goodbye Girl. Think this play is best avoided if I'm honest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great female version of the 'Odd Couple' 17 April 2012
By Ianora
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I belong to a amateur dramatic society and I am looking for plays I would find interesting to direct and which our audiences would enjoy. It is not very often that I laugh out loud when reading a play, even a comedy, so I was amazed when I did and I was only into the first scene! Most people will remember the male version film, but I was surprised how well it works with female characters. The male characters are a little stereotyped. However,it is now on my list of plays I want to direct. Well worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Original "Odd Couple" 18 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Being a huge fan of "The Odd Couple" television series, I finally decided to read the play on which the TV show is based. THE ODD COUPLE, which premiered in 1965, was Neil Simon's first big success. His writing is consistently amusing and often flat-out hilarious; I laughed especially hard during the first scene, in which Oscar Madison and his poker-playing friends are trying to prevent Felix Unger, just thrown out of his home by his wife, from committing suicide! This "episode" was, of course, the starting point for the TV series, but unlike the show, the play has a single plot: Felix and Oscar get together, quarrel, date the Pigeon sisters, quarrel again, and ultimately "break up." Though the play is a comedy, there are interesting parallels to A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE in Oscar's poker games, particularly the one in the last scene during which Felix leaves. THE ODD COUPLE is an excellent example of Simon's wit. Next, I would love to see it onstage!

4.0 out of 5 stars Odd Couple 21 Aug 2000
By Affaire de Coeur - Published on Amazon.com
When you pair David Paymer and Nathan Lane as Felix and Oscar in the Odd Couple, you are in for a comic tour de force that over stretches its material. With a supporting cast which includes Dan Castellaneta and Yeardley Smith (both from The Simpsons) and Linda Purl, the cast is almost perfect. This production is a little too visual in a few of its jokes. However, on the whole, it unscrupulously grabs the audio listener by his ears and shakes him with laughter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic American Comedy. 1 Dec 2001
By tvtv3 - Published on Amazon.com
Before the movie, before the television series, before all the spin offs, there was just the play. The story is a classic spin on the buddy plot. Oscar Madison is a successful sports writer who happens to be best friends with Felix Unger, a newswriter for CBS. Each week Oscar has five of his buddies over for a Friday night game of poker. However, on one fateful night Felix fails to appear in time for the game. It turns out Felix has just been thrown out by his wife and has no place to go. Feeling sorry for his old friend, Oscar invites Felix to stay with him and be his roommate. What ensues is a classic Neil Simon look at friendship that will endure for ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Nathan Lane! 24 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Nathan Lane is delightful as Oscar Madison. I also enjoyed hearing Dan Castellanata ("Homer Simpson") as Murray, and Yeardley Smith ("Lisa Simpson") as Cecily Pigeon.

This arrived in great condition-exactly as advertised. Great way to check out a script to see if you want to do the show.
