This Christmas season, in an unique conglomeration of cultural and historical and perspectives, English Theatre Düsseldorf and the Komödie in der Steinstraße come together to pay tribute to the late-great-king of comedy, Neil Simon.
English Theatre Düsseldorf will perform Neil Simon's classic (1962) original version of THE ODD COUPLE, in English, on (Mondays at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm), as Komödie in der Steinstraße, will perform the updated (2002) version of OSCAR UND FELIX, in German, (Tuesdays through Sundays all at 8pm) from end of November 2018 to beginning of January 2019.
Performances dates for THE ODD COUPLE are as follows:
03. December (Premiere), 09. 10. 16. 17. 30. December 2018 AND 06. & 07. January 2019 - Mondays at 8pm // Sundays at 2pm.
Both plays open as a group of the guys assemble for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it's no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger, who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed, and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds, Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.
