Odd Couple--Female Version
By Neil Simon
Directed by Mikki Maddox
Come join Baraboo Theatre Guild as we celebrate our tenth anniversary of dinner theatre at the Farm Kitchen Restaurant with the show that started it all--The Odd Couple--Female Version!!!
A remake of Neil Simon's long-running Broadway comedy, The Odd Couple centers around two divorced woman who live together, but can't stand each other's habits. Simon himself updated the script in the mid '80s to an all female version starring Rita Moreno and Sally Struthers in the Madison/Unger roles.
Neil Simon's famous update of his contemporary classic starts with a group of women friends playing their regular game of Trivial Pursuit. This week, the coterie is meeting at the apartment of Olive Madison, a divorcee who freely admits to being a slob: "I leave a mess when I read a book." Late to arrive is Florence Unger, a stickler for detail who would try the patience of a saint, and who has unfortunately just become separated from her husband. As life would have it, the slob and the fuss-budget decide to room together -- with hilarious results!
Within days, Florence's obsessive habits start taking their toll on Olive and their friends. The only remedy Olive can think of (a pair of brothers from Barcelona) disastrously backfires, and the two women are forced to agree on one thing -- even the best of friends sometimes make the worst of roommates.
