‘The Odd Couple’ to hit HART stage

A production of Neil Simon’s Broadway hit “The Odd Couple” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 22-23, 29-20 and Sept. 5-6 and at 3 p.m. Aug. 24 and 31 and Sept. 7 at the Haywood Arts Regional Theatre in Waynesville.

This blockbuster opened at the Plymouth Theater in March 1965 and ran nearly a thousand performances, staring Walter Matthau and Art Carney. The 1968 film version stared Matthau and Jack Lemon. That was such a hit that a TV series followed in 1970 with Jack Klugman and Tony Randall, which ran five seasons. 

In the play, Felix, a fastidious man who has just separated from his wife, moves in with his friend, Oscar, a sports writer who has also separated from his wife. Oscar is something of a slob, whose idea of a great evening is poker with his buddies. The comedy situations that evolve have become classics in the theater. 

Tickets are $22 for adults, $18 for seniors and $10 for students. Special $6 discount tickets are available for students on Sundays.
