The 2021 theatre season is gearing up to start production in March.   The Odd Couple - Female Version is the first scheduled show of the season.

Most people will remember The Odd Couple,  a very funny comedy starring Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon, as written by Neil Simon and directed by Gene Saks.   Now just imagine those characters played by women, and you have The Odd Couple - Female Version.

 

There are eight very quirky and fun characters…six women and two men.

 

Olive Madison - A successful television producer.  She is intelligent, attractive, and wisecracking, with a good sense of humor, and she’s a complete slob.  She has an encyclopedic understanding of sports.  

 

Florence Unger  - Attractive, very well-groomed and neat.  She has just broken up with her husband.  She takes herself very seriously, likes to clean, decorate, and cook.  She is intelligent and warm-hearted, but has no sense of humor.

 

Sylvie - Desperately trying to stop smoking, she sucks on lollipops or chews gum.  She can get irritated with her friends, but has a good sense of humor, especially about her husband, and she's pregnant in the last scene.

 

Renee -  She can be very plain-spoken, especially when she points out Olive's failings as a hostess.  She is single and dating a doctor.

 

Vera -  Very sweet and somewhat spacey.  Although quite smart,  she is often a step or two behind her friends.  She’s very funny but doesn't realize it.

 

Mickey - A police officer, who is down-to-earth, plain-talking, and has a good understanding of people; She tries very hard to be in control of all situations.

 

Manolo Costazuela - He is handsome, very well-groomed, and Spanish with a Castilian accent. He is every woman's dream date and showers both Olive and Flo with attention.

 

Jesus Costazuela - Manolo’s younger brother.  He is also very handsome, well-groomed with excellent posture, and very romantic.  He gets very emotional and truly appreciates Florence.
