Geva Theatre Center's 41st Mainstage Season concludes with Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple, which begins performances April 22 on the Elaine P. Wilson Mainstage.

Directed by John Miller-Stephany, the production continues through May 18.

The cast is led by Tony winner Michael McGrath as Oscar Madison and Noah Racey as Felix Unger with Jennifer Cody and Erin Lindsey Krom as, respectively, Gwendolyn and Cecily Pigeon. They are joined by Brian D. Coats, Drew Hirshfield, Patrick Noonan and Robert Rutland, who play Oscar Madison’s poker-playing buddies Speed, Vinnie, Murray and Roy, respectively.

"Fastidious Felix Unger is thrown out by his wife," according to press notes. "His only refuge is with his best friend, Oscar Madison, a recently divorced sportswriter whose apartment is a study in slovenly chaos. Friends, yes, but will they drive each other crazy?! This peculiar pair, with decidedly different approaches to life, to love – and yes, to housework, has been entertaining audiences with side-splitting laughter and classic comedy for nearly 50 years."



The design team includes John Coyne (scenic design), Pamela Scofield (costume design), Matthew Reinert (lighting design) and Dan Roach (sound design).

Tickets start at $25; call (585) 232-GEVA or visit gevatheatre.org. Geva Theatre Center is located at 75 Woodbury Blvd., Rochester, NY.
