YCP TheaterWorks’ 56th Season, 2015-2016 was to open with Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? but was unfortunately canceled. The winter production, The Odd Couple, by Neil Simon and directed by Joel Karpoff was a huge success in January. Jake’s Women, by Neil Simon is capping the season in June, directed by Richard Troiano.
Neil Simon’s THE ODD COUPLE
YCP TheaterWorks was proud to present Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple in January 2016. This classic comedy opens as Oscar Madison (Robert Ansbro II) hosts the weekly poker game for his buddies (Tom Ammirato, Scott Jones, Rich Sheehy and Gary Simon). If the messy bachelor pad and green sandwiches are any indication, it’s no wonder that Oscar’s wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger (Jonathan Nelson) who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal. As the action unfolds Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean-freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born. An evening with the Pigeon sisters, Susan Bond and Elizabeth Moritz, completes one of Neil Simon’s most beloved comedies. The play was staged by directorJoel Karpoff.
