"One of Neil Simon's best, and this audio play version does his wit and playwriting abilities full and complete justice." (Midwest Book Review)
This is one of the best performances of The Odd Couple I have never seen. It is perfectly cast all around. Timing is excellent. I have played Oscar and Murray the cop in productions of this show and I really enjoyed listening to it. A Must Listen!!! two thumbs way up

Not quite as good as the original and not nearly as good as the television series but still good nevertheless. A fun listen and great narration so, if your in the mood for a good laugh than give it a go.

Other reviews here note that the file is all jumbled up, with scenes out of order. This has now been fixed by an update, so buy this without fear!
It's a fabulous story of a slob and a neat freak who decide to live together when their marriages fail. Hilarity ensues. Nathan Lane is stellar as Oscar, a genius actor perfectly cast and having a lot of fun while he's at it.
Classic American comedy at its finest. Buy, laugh, and laugh some more ...

The play is, I'm sure, good. The performances were stellar. But I've listened to this over and over again and even re-downloaded it again and it appears the scenes are out of order in places, characters leave in one scene and reappear mid-sentence after the chapter breaks,laughs from the audience cut off mid-laugh at a chapter break and clearly what comes next isn't a continuation, and so on. Something's wrong with the file that downloads.
I'd have loved to have heard this, but there are missing and out of order parts in the file.
What a waste! I bought this because I am in the play and I wanted it to help me learn my lines. But the scenes are not in order! It starts with the ending of Act 2 with the Pigeon Sisters, then jumps to Act 1 and then back to the Pigeon sisters. I called Audible and they said to delete it ant download it again. I did and it was the same.
No. Not if the scenes are not in order!
I want my money back!
add the entire Act 2 Scene 1 studying for a play and this doesnt help ... the rest is great
go to youtube to get Act 2 Scene 1
