Northlight Theatre announces a one-week extension of Neil Simon's The Odd Couple, featuring comic actors Tim Kazurinsky and Marc Grapey as the famously mismatched roommates. The comedy, directed by Artistic Director BJ Jones will play at Northlight Theatre, 9501 Skokie Blvd in Skokie, through December 16, 2012.
When recently-failed marriages lead famously mismatched roommates Oscar and Felix into sharing an apartment, Felix's finicky habits and Oscar's slovenly ways make for a disastrous yet side-splittingly funny combination in this beloved comedy by Neil Simon. The Chicago cast of comic actors includes Tim Kazurinsky (Felix), Marc Grapey (Oscar), Bruce Jarchow (Roy), Peter DeFaria (Murray the Cop), William Dick (Vinnie), Molly Glynn (Cecily), Katherine Keberlein (Gwen) and Phil Ridarelli (Speed).
"We are thrilled that tickets are in such high demand," says BJ Jones. "This is a distinguished ensemble of Chicago's great comedic actors giving such rich and colorful portrayals in Neil Simon's finest and funniest script. Audiences have been loving this show."
