Neil Simon’s classic comedy The Odd Couple will start its two-week run at the Red Barn Summer Theatre on Wednesday, June 23rd.
The Odd Couple tells the hilarious tale of two friends who are total opposites–Oscar, the divorced slob and Felix, the fastidious fussbudget. On the night of his weekly poker party, Oscar allows Felix to stay at his place because the sensitive Felix has just separated from his wife. Their friendship is put to the test when they discover they couldn’t be more different but Felix and Oscar’s growing misery provides loads of laughter for the audience.
Luke McLaughlin plays Oscar while Aaron Moon portrays Felix. The wise-cracking members of Oscar’s poker gang are played by Joe Aiello, Sam Lynch, Griffin Huntley and Anthony Bacon. A couple of friendly neighbors—the Pigeon sisters—are played by Francesca Alfano and Kiara Wood. The play is directed by Red Barn artistic director Michael Taylor.
Playing on the lawn Wednesday and Thursday the first week of The Odd Couple run will be talented Frankfort musicians Gibson Wells (6/23) and Hunter Wainscott (6/24). The Cellar, wine and picnic area, will be open on Fridays and Saturdays only.
Curtain goes up on The Odd Couple at 7:30 pm, Wednesdays through Saturdays, June 23-July 3. The Sunday matinee performance on June 27 begins at 2pm. The Red Barn will be dark on July 4th.
