While most audiences are familiar with Simon’s classic 1965 script, not many realize he wrote an updated version 20 years later for a specifically female cast. Kathleen Somssich and Genevieve Aichele star as the mismatched Florence Unger and Olive Madison in this endearing and high-spirited classic comedy. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version. Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for a game of Trivial Pursuit (and Mr. Simon gets more mileage out of those real 1980's Trivial Pursuit questions than we ever thought possible!). The upstairs Pidgeon sisters neighbors are replaced by the hilarious Costazuela brothers, two "classy Spanish gentlemen in double-breasted suits." The Odd Couple - Female Version
is a perfect opportunity to warm up the midwinter with laughter and friendship.
Supporting cast includes Helen Brock, Fred Calcinari, Diane Ficarra, Monique Peaslee Foote, Peter Josephson, and Kate Kirkwood. Directed by Robin Fowler, the production team includes set design by Hannah Joy Smith, lighting design by Meghann Beauchamp, costumes by Rachel Vilandre, and stage management by Mary Langley.
