THE ODD COUPLE STORY By Janet Klein Space sponsored by: George and Co Encore Theatre proudly presents live on the stage “The Odd Couple” at The Maguire Theatre located at Arts of the Albemarle, 516 East Main Street, Elizabeth City, NC. The Odd Couple was written by Neil Simon and premiered on Broadway at the Plymouth Theatre March 10, 1965. This hilarious story is about two friends – a sloppy sportswriter, Oscar Madison, and a meticulous news writer, Felix Ungar, – and how their friendship is constantly strained by unconsciously repeating the same mistakes they made in the marriages they just left. Felix Ungar, played by Brian Cebrian, has been thrown out by his wife; and his friend Oscar Madison who is divorced, played by Frank Elfring, invites him to stay at his apartment. Despite Oscar’s untidy habits he seems to enjoy his life just the way it is. However, Felix can’t seem to enjoy anything except pointing out other people’s mistakes in an ever so gentle way. This proves to be very annoying with his poker friends, played by Todd Graves, Kent Luton, Doug Gardner and Al DelGarbino. Oscar finally convinces Felix to have a little bit of fun, which results in a double date with the Pigeon Sisters, played by Sarah Hess and Reisha Bass. This hysterical date with these Sisters will be unforgettable. Director, Janet Klein, hopes that this comedy will put a smile on your face and laughter in your heart. The Odd Couple opens April 15 at 7:30 and will run April 16, 21, 22 and 23 at 7:30. There will also be matinee on Sunday April 17 at 2pm. Tickets are $16 and are available at Arts of the Albemarle or by calling 252-338-6455. Albemarle Tradewinds April 2016 33
