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

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

Brilliantly funny, and the file is now fixed

Other reviews here note that the file is all jumbled up, with scenes out of order. This has now been fixed by an update, so buy this without fear!

It's a fabulous story of a slob and a neat freak who decide to live together when their marriages fail. Hilarity ensues. Nathan Lane is stellar as Oscar, a genius actor perfectly cast and having a lot of fun while he's at it.

Classic American comedy at its finest. Buy, laugh, and laugh some more ...
