In this Tony Award-winning comic masterpiece, Neil Simon created two of the most memorable characters in the history of Broadway. Theater J's revved-up, high-octane, All-Star cast, mines the surprisingly deep emotional moments of two middle aged men coping with fresh divorce and and the hilarious comic absurdities that come as they continually get in each others way.
With the help of four high-strung poker buddies and two British divorcees coming in from upstairs, slovenly Oscar tries to mend his finicky Felix’s broken heart. Laugh out loud hilarity ensues.
