“The Odd Couple – Female Version” at the Randall Theatre

Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple”, but this time with a twist: it’s the female version. The play begins with a group of female friends at game night, when two of them – both recent divorcees – decide to move in together.

The problem? One is a slob, the other is a stickler for detail, and that sets the stage for a hilarious chain of events.

“The Odd Couple” is playing through February 9th at Randall Theatre. Reserved tickets are 15 dollars in advance or “pay what you want” at the door for remaining seats 30 minutes before show time.
