Homewood Theatre opens Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple” tonight, and if you go to see it, you’ll be among the first to experience the theater’s new space.
The theater recently left its space at Brookwood Village after a successful production of “Into the Woods,” and it’s opening its new space in Homewood’s SoHo Square (across from Demetri’s BBQ) with Simon’s classic comedy about mismatched roommates – clean-freak Felix Ungar and not-so-clean-freak Oscar Madison.
Kyle Bass, who is executive director of Homewood Theatre, is in the cast of “The Odd Couple,” and he says the new theater will be ready for audiences, though it has been a fast transition.
“We only took possession of the space a couple of weeks ago,” he says.
Bass plays Oscar to Howard Green’s Felix, and the rest of the cast, directed by Marietta Lunsford, includes Shawn Reese, Steven Ross, Raymond Quintero, Michael Wilbanks, Laura Elton Towns and Jana Hoffman Huddleston.
It’s not often you get to be the first to experience a new theater.
“The Odd Couple,” performances Feb. 10-20 (7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays; 2:30 p.m. Sundays). Tickets are $20 and available here.
