Two bachelors, one apartment, a great evening of fun!
The State Street Theater Company presents the iconic American comedy THE ODD COUPLE directed by Michael Koester and written by Tony award-winning Neil Simon. Performances run Friday and Saturday, March 24 - 25 at 7:30 pm with a 2 pm matinee on Sunday March 26.
After their thoroughly fed up wives throw them out, Felix Ungar, an uptight neat freak newswriter moves in with his friend, sloppy sportswriter Oscar Madison. Despite Oscar’s problems – careless spending, excessive gambling, a poorly kept house filled with spoiled food – he seems to enjoy life.
Felix, however, seems utterly incapable of enjoying anything and only finds purpose in pointing out his own and other people’s mistakes and foibles. Even when he tries to do so in a gentle and constructive way, his corrections and suggestions prove extremely annoying to those around him.
Throughout a series of hilarious interchanges, these mismatched roommates teach each other about life, love and the meaning of friendship. Filled with witty dialogue and hilarious one-liners, THE ODD COUPLE remains one of Neil Simon’s most recognizable works and one of the greatest stage comedies ever written.
General admission seating is $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Tickets are available at the Chamber of Commerce, online, or by calling 507-359-9990. State Street Theater is located at 1 North State Street, New Ulm. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit statestreetnewulm.org.
State Street Theater Company’s production of THE ODD COUPLE is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. and made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Additional funding has been received by Pat and Nikki Eckstein and Gag Sheet Metal, Inc.
