From June 29th to July 3rd, 3rd Culture Theatre and East West Theatre are coming together to present The Odd Couple, a play of male camaraderie originally written by Neil Simon starring Jim Bennett, Charles Mayer and directed by Jonathan Geenen.
“In this classic comedy about male friendship, sparks and bowls of spaghetti fly when obsessive neat freak Felix Unger moves into super-slob Oscar Madison’s apartment. Over broken cups, burnt dinners and unused coasters, the two poker buddies will discover just how strong their friendship is … if they don’t kill each other first.”
“The truth is that the theatre community in Shanghai has limited personnel on all fronts, from actors to stage managers to you name it. So it makes sense to join forces when the show calls for it,” said Elena Yeo, 3CT Producer.
“It’s a natural partnership where both sides are contributing equally to produce a great show that’s perfect for a Shanghai summer,” added Fiona Pollard, EWT Executive Producer.
All shows are in English only, no Chinese subtitles. Tickets are 180RMB presale; 200RMB for regular reservations (cost covers admission into Chinatown). Special drinks and dinner packages available. For more info, contact [email protected] or 135 6410 2955.
