The Odd Couple (2000)
One of the funniest plays to have ever taken over Broadway, The Odd Couple is a true American comedy classic, and its author, Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning Neil Simon, continues to be the most prolific and best-loved playwright that this country has produced.

After his wife boots him out and demands a divorce, the fussy, tidy, and slightly neurotic Felix Ungar moves in with his buddy, the irascible, crass, and alarmingly sloppy Oscar Madison. As the two men adjust to bachelor life they come to an important realization –they are driving each other nut! Tensions come to a rolling boil on the night of a dinner party with the vivacious Pigeon sisters from upstairs; Felix is more worried about overcooking the beef and Oscar is more interested in what happens after dinner, leading to one of the most classic comic confrontations in American theatre history.

ACT's production will feature some of the most hilarious comic talent in Seattle and promises to bring down the house with laughter. Under the direction of comedy maestro Jeff Steitzer, the title roles will be filled by ACT favorites John Procaccino as Oscar Madison and R. Hamilton Wright as Felix Ungar. If you think you've seen The Odd Couple — think again!
