Details: Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick reignite the magic they kindled in The Producers with their new vehicle, Joe Mantello's revival of The Odd Couple, at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. Lane and Broderick—the original Max and Leo of The Producers—play Oscar Madison and Felix Unger in Neil Simon's classic comedy about the uneasy cohabitation of a sloppy sportswriter and an uptight writer for CBS news. The 1965 play's 1960s time period has been retained.
The supporting cast of The Odd Couple features Peter Frechette (Roy), Brad Garrett (Murray), Lee Wilkof (Vinnie), and Rob Bartlett (Speed), and Pigeon Sisters Jessica Stone (Cecily) and Olivia d'Abo (Gwendolyn). Joe Mantello directs.
