Chautauqua revives female Odd Couple


Because of popular demand, Chautauqua Playhouse will again present THE ODD COUPLE-FEMALE VERSION with the same cast as the 2008 sell-out production. Neil Simon adapted this script from his original ODD COUPLE story line, but with a new twist – Felix and Oscar have now become Florence and Olive, and the poker game has become a weekly Trivial Pursuit game. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the Costazuela brothers from upstairs.

The production is directed by Jill McMahon and features Susan Madden as Olive Madison and Georgann Wallace as Florence Unger, with Chris Lamb and Warren Harrison as the Costazuela Brothers. Set design is by Rodger Hoopman, with lighting by Ross Aldrich. Costumes are by Eileen Beaver.

This rousing comedy by Neil Simon will be presented in a revival opening at Chautauqua Playhouse on Friday, June 26th at 8:00 pm. It continues on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm through July 19 (no performance on July 4th). Sunday matinee performances will play at 2:00 pm. There will also be two Thursday performances on July 2nd and 9th at 8 pm.

All performances will be held at the Chautauqua Playhouse, 5325 Engle Road in the La Sierra Community Center in Carmichael. Admission is $17 general and $15 students, seniors, children and SARTA members. For tickets and additional information call the theatre at (916) 489-7529
