The Odd Couple is Coming to Oceanside's Star Theatre February 12-21

The Star Theatre Company Presents Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple & Neil Simon’s The Female Odd Couple written by Neil Simon and directed by David Schulz.  This production is one of Neil Simon’s most recognizable and timeless comedies. Fastidious Felix/Florence Unger is thrown out by their spouse. Their only refuge is with best friend, Oscar/Olive Madison, a recently divorced sportswriter whose apartment is a study in slovenly chaos. Friends, yes, but will they drive each other crazy?! This peculiar pair, with decidedly different approaches to life, to love – and yes, to housework, has been entertaining audiences with side-splitting laughter and classic comedy for nearly 50 years.
