It’s a play, or at least an idea, almost everyone is familiar with — two polar opposites get stuck together and madness ensues. But as much as that plot has been rehashed over the years, at no time has it been done better than in Neil Simon’s classic, The Odd Couple. Now, thanks to the Purple Rose Theatre Company, Southeastern Michigan residents have the chance to see the timeless pairing of neat-freak news writer Felix Ungar and slovenly sportswriter Oscar Madison live on stage. After getting kicked out by his wife, Ungar is forced to move in with his friend, and their clashing personal styles lead to nothing but laughs for audiences. Directed by Lauren Mounsey. Student discounts available. Runs through March 26.
