MDI Drama To Present Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple (Female Version)

What do you get when a well-meaning woman takes in her best friend after her best friend separates from her husband and is basically homeless? Two hours of non-stop, side-splitting, hilarity.

That’s what MDI Drama promises with The Odd Couple (Female Version) by Neil Simon directed by Frank Bachman. Performance are Friday, April 30 and Saturday, May 1, at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, May 2 at 2:00 p.m. in the Higgins-Demas Theater.

After inviting her friend to stay with her, Olive Madison, a basically happy slob, quickly learns that not only can she not live with the obsessively clean and hyper-allergic Florence Unger, nobody can.

Adding to and merrily compounding the mushrooming mayhem are Olive and Florence’s friends: compulsive smoker Sylvie, the New York cop Mickey, the familiar hard-as-nails New York dame Renee and the less-than-Seventh-Avenue-adorned Vera who astounds her friends by claiming her husband accuses her of dressing to sexy. Then there are Manolo (Matt Homer) and Jesus Costazuela (Noah Davis), brothers from Barcelona, Spain, whose apartment is two floors up (And toward whom Olive is making immodest romantic plans).

Noelle Reilly, fresh from her Regional Drama All Festival Cast performance portrays Olive Madison.  Portraying the role of Florence Unger is MDI Drama newcomer Catherine Sharp.

Debora Vettori portrays the role of Sylvie. Mae Krieg portrays Mickey.  Alyssa Murad is Renee.  The role of Vera is played by India Ross.

Performances for Friday and Saturday will begin at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens and may be purchased at the door.
