This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Ungar, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed, and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but 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.
Were it movie, Odd Couple would be rated PG, with some adult themes and situations.

Theatre in these uncertain times is a gift. Top-tier theatre is a godsend. Oregon Cabaret Theatre’s production of The Odd Couple, directed by Galloway Stevens, is witty, heartfelt, and top-tier. It’s the perfect reintroduction to live theatre in this new landscape.
Demonstrated very effectively and convincingly that it is possible to be quite safe in the theater, whilst also making sure that the audience were entertained and had fun. It's a tough balancing act, but they have pulled it off.

"Such a great production. Perfect details. All Covid precautions felt effortless."
"They did everything perfectly - Much-needed entertainment"
"Loved it! Social distancing theater is back in Ashland at the Cabaret!"
"The Pigeon sisters were such fun! A wonderful play"
