America’s comic mastermind, Neil Simon, has updated his comedy The Odd Couple, bringing the trials and tribulations of Felix Unger and Oscar Madison to the present day.This classic comedy opens as a group of the guys assembled for cards in the apartment of divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it’s no wonder that his wife left him. Late to arrive is Felix Unger who has just been separated from his wife. Fastidious, depressed and none too tense, Felix seems suicidal, but as the action unfolds Oscar becomes the one with murder on his mind when the clean-freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results. Those who love the original version will laugh over and over again at the classic characters in an all-new setting.
FMCT BROADWAY BOUND winner Katharine Strom is in NYC this weekend and landed an audition for Broadway Casting Agency Telsey and Co. She was seen by casting director Patrick Goodwin. Patrick is currently working on Finding Neverland the musical! FMCT is thrilled to have Katharine represent us in NYC for our inaugural Broadway Bound Competition!
Broadway Bound was our American Idol style competition held in April to see who was the FM Area’s next Broadway Star! The Stage held a series of public performances where they helped select who would take home the Broadway Bound Trophy along with a Trip to NYC. In NYC Katharine not only received the opportunity to audition for a Broadway show but also won the opportunity to have a master class with Broadway & West End actress Rachel Izen, and voice lesson with widely acclaimed Musical Director, and Performance Coach Michael Lavine.
