Audible Editor Reviews

A trifecta of Tony Award winners headline this Broadway blitz at the 92nd Street Y. Longtime collaborators Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane discuss their work together on a pair of classic comedy remakes, The Odd Couple and The Producers, respectively spanning stage and screen. Joe Mantello, director of the former production, chimes in with a tribute to its author, the prolific Neil Simon, a playwright to whom both Broderick and Lane owe much of their early career success. Indeed, much of this two-hour forum stands as a stirring tribute to stars of the stage past, including Mel Brookes, Jackie Gleeson, and Eugene O’Neil. Not only colleagues but also friends, the three actors’ history of collaboration is betrayed by their relaxed rapport and self-deprecating witticisms.

Publisher's Summary

Join the Tony Award-winning duo of Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick as they discuss playing Oscar and Felix in the eagerly awaited production of The Odd Couple, which reunites these stars after their history-making collaboration in The Producers. Lane and Broderick are joined by Tony-winning director Joe Mantello of Wicked and Take Me Out.

This event took place on October 30, 2005.

    "Enjoyable Chat With Two Favorite Actors"
    What made the experience of listening to Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, and Joe Mantello Discuss The Odd Couple at the 92nd Street Y the most enjoyable?

    The quick wit of Nathan Lane. The sly dry wit of Matthew Broderick. The feeling of ease between them.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Two of my favorite actors, Broderick and Lane. Lane is a delightful raconteur


    Which character – as performed by Patrick Pacheco – was your favorite?

    Hmm. Well, since he was the interviewer I assume he was performing a version of himself. .


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some good laughs and a couple tears.


    Any additional comments?

    Toward the end, it felt like the interviewer had to fill a certain amount of time. The questions became tiresome, and the interviewees seemed ready to go home. Still, it didn't mar an otherwise enjoyable conversation.
