22 Feb 2013
Pioneer Theatre Company will present Neil Simon's iconic comedy The Odd Couple beginning March 22 at the Simmons Pioneer Memorial Theatre in Salt Lake City. Mark La Mura and Jeff Talbott will star.
Directed by Karen Azenberg, performances will continue through April 6.
The cast features Helen Anker (Promises, Promises) as Cecily Pigeon, Amy Bodnar (Oklahoma!, Ragtime) as Gwendolyn Pigeon, Joe DeBevc as Murray, Kent Hadfield as Roy, Paul Kiernan as Speed, La Mura (Dinner at Eight, Taking Sides) as Oscar Madison, Nathan Sears as Vinnie and Talbott (Sly Fox, Fortune's Fool) as Felix Ungar.
Here's how PTC bills the work: "After their thoroughly fed up wives throw them out, sloppy sportswriter Oscar Madison and uptight neat freak Felix Ungar decide to move in together, thinking they'll save on expenses and have a few laughs. But it turns out the laughs are on them."
Other members of the creative team include scenic designer Michael Schweikhardt, costume designer Brenda Van der Weil, lighting designer Michael Gilliam, sound designer Matthew Tibbs, stage manager Mary P. Costello, production stage manager Jeffrey Stewart Williams, dramaturg Greg Hatch, first assistant stage manager Christine Moore and second assistant stage manager Jerry Jensen.
