Unger and Madison are at it again (as soon as we can reschedule this production)!
AMANDA BEARSE and TERESA GANZEL are Olive Madison and Florence Unger in Neil Simon’s reworking of his riotously funny comedy classic centered around two wildly mismatched roommates living together in New York City.It’s the mid-1980s and Olive Madison and her group of girlfriends are enjoying their weekly Trivial Pursuit night in Olive’s messy and ill-equipped Riverside Drive apartment. Suddenly, their friend Florence Unger arrives, fresh from being dumped by her husband. Fearful that the neurotic Florence might attempt suicide, Olive invites her to move in as her roommate. Olive’s messy habits and easy-going outlook on life soon clashes with Florence’s high-strung neurotic neat-freak tendencies, testing their friendship to the limit. When Olive organizes a double-date with the Costazuela brothers (who live upstairs), their differences come to a head and sparks fly. What happens to a friendship when a neat-freak and a slob try to co-exist?
