    Since its Broadway debut in 1965, Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple has remained his most popular play – “The biggest hit I ever had, and ever will have,” he said in 1997 interview. And it’s no wonder. Simon’s story of two mismatched roommates – incurable slob Oscar Madison and inveterate neat freak Felix Ungar – contains everything that has kept the author at the top of his profession for a half-century, and garnered him more combined Tony and Oscar nominations than any other writer. The eight characters in The Odd Couple – Oscar, Felix, four poker-playing buddies, and a pair of loopy sisters from England – are three-dimensional and all too human. Meanwhile, the play contains so many hilarious one-liners that Mike Nichols, who directed the original Broadway production, told Simon “if we put on this play, we may get charged with manslaughter, because people will be carried out of the theater dying of laughter.”

    A new production of The Odd Couple, at the San Miguel Playhouse, Av. Independencia 82, runs for eight performances from February 22 through March 4, Thursdays through Saturdays at 7pm, Sundays at 3pm. It stars veteran stage, film, and television actor Fil Formicola (Splash, Law & Order) as Oscar, and local celebrity actor and countertenor Don Krim (The 39 Steps, The Tricky Part) as Felix. Reserved seat tickets are 300 pesos, available in the courtyard at 57a Mesones (corner of Reloj) from 2:30 to 5:30 every day except Sunday; or online at

      Rousing cheers and applause for the opening night of Odd Couple playing at the SMA Playhouse on Independencia. It was extremely well done, the actors were all brilliant, the set is beautiful and you will laugh and laugh.. It’s a must see. It was the longest applause at the end I have every experienced at a theater in SMA.
