Publisher's Summary

Poker buddies Felix Ungar and Oscar Madison suddenly find themselves bachelors again and innocently decide to share an apartment. In this classic comedy by America's most prolific and successful playwright, these two wildly mismatched roommates bring down the house when they try to live together in one eight-room New York City apartment. Hyper-neurotic Felix and Oscar the slob are certainly Neil Simon's best-known characters. Performed by a full cast starring Nathan Lane, David Paymer, Dan Castellaneta, Yeardley Smith, and more!


What the Critics Say

"One of Neil Simon's best, and this audio play version does his wit and playwriting abilities full and complete justice." (Midwest Book Review)

Capturing the spirt of the stage

This is one of the best performances of The Odd Couple I have never seen. It is perfectly cast all around. Timing is excellent. I have played Oscar and Murray the cop in productions of this show and I really enjoyed listening to it. A Must Listen!!! two thumbs way up

Scenes Out of Order and Abrupt Cuts

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The play is, I'm sure, good. The performances were stellar. But I've listened to this over and over again and even re-downloaded it again and it appears the scenes are out of order in places, characters leave in one scene and reappear mid-sentence after the chapter breaks,laughs from the audience cut off mid-laugh at a chapter break and clearly what comes next isn't a continuation, and so on. Something's wrong with the file that downloads.

Any additional comments?

I'd have loved to have heard this, but there are missing and out of order parts in the file.
