Our Cousin Vinnie
The Odd Couple
Jan. 31 to Feb. 16
Have you ever wanted to see Matt Olin twelve times in two weeks? If the answer is yes, then we have some fantastic news… you can watch him on stage with Theatre Charlotte as Vinnie in The Odd Couple, running January 31 through February 16!
Written by the legendary Neil Simon, The Odd Couple is one of the greatest comedies in American theatre. As Theatre Charlotte describes it, “The guys are gathered for poker night in the messy apartment of divorced sportswriter, Oscar Madison, when Felix Unger arrives late. Fastidious, tense, and practically suicidal, Felix announces that he has just separated from his wife. When Oscar, the slob, invites Felix, the clean freak, to move in with him, the odd couple is born with hilarious results!”
We’ll be in the audience cheering on “our cousin Vinnie” and the rest of the stellar cast of The Odd Couple, and we think you should join us. Don’t miss out on a heartwarming evening of hijinx and hilarity, get your tickets here!
While you’re at it, listen to the latest episode of the Biscuit CLT Podcast. Andy Goh speaks with Matt and the cast of The Odd Couple about bringing this stage classic to life.
