SYNOPSIS

In this Tony award-winning classic by Neil Simon, a divorced sportswriter (aka “the slob”) invites his recently divorced best friend (aka “the neat freak”) to be his roommate, and the results are predictably hilarious. Throw in a colorful cadre of 1960’s era pals and a pair of vivacious English sisters and you have a winning formula for non-stop fun! Can our two protagonists learn to co-exist in one space, and perhaps more importantly, will poker nights ever be the same? Hailed as one of the greatest comedies of all time, The New York Times said it best with, “There is scarcely a moment that is not hilarious.”
