About the Show

In Neil Simon’s Tony Award-winning comedy, “The Odd Couple,” Shane Jacobson and Todd McKenney embody the iconic characters of Oscar and Felix, two divorced men who become unlikely roommates.

This classic comedy opens on a friendly card game in the untidy apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it’s no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Ungar, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed, and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together. The action unfolds with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.

Shane’s portrayal of Oscar, the cigar-smoking slob, contrasts hilariously with Todd’s portrayal of Felix, the hyper-allergic neat freak. As they navigate their differences, their antics lead to comedic misunderstandings and uproarious laughter. This Australian stage production promises to revive the timeless humor of Simon’s classic, with Jacobson and McKenney delivering comedic mastery. Audiences can anticipate the witty banter and mismatched dynamic that made the play, movie, and TV series beloved worldwide. Don’t miss the chance to witness this legendary duo bring to life the enduring charm of “The Odd Couple” in a side-splitting performance.
