Union Street Players kicks off 2008 with an updated American comedy classic. Neil Simon’s "The Odd Couple" has been a favorite of audiences since it first appeared on Broadway. It was eventually made into a successful film and television series. Simon rewrote his comedic masterpiece with a gender twist in the 1980’s and turned Felix Unger and Oscar Madison into Florence Unger and Olive Madison.
USP is excited to bring this new take to Pella audiences February 21-24. Performances will be held on the stage of the Joan Kuyper Farver Auditorium in the Pella Community Center. For more information, please check our website or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
