Many libraries collecting dramas on cassettes have concentrated on English staples--Shakespeare, Shaw, Wilde, etc. With justifiable domestic pride, L.A. Theatre Works is recording worthy American plays. In this classic Simon comedy, David Paymer is the endearing hypochondriac Felix Unger,and Nathan Lane is his snappish, abrasive adversary Oscar Madison. An audience at this staged performance laughs with them and the supporting cast. Director Peter Levin paces their comic timing briskly. The sound is clear and close up, avoiding hollow stage acoustics, but the producer could have added value by filling the empty cassette side(s) with readings of scenes from another play by Simon. The Odd Couple is recommended for drama collections and for devotees of witty dialog.-Gordon Blackwell, Eastchester, NY

Poker buddies Felix Ungar and Oscar Madison suddenly find themselves bachelors again and decide to share an apartment in this classic comedy of two wildly mismatched roommates which was originally a stage play before it became the basis for a tremendously popular television series and the subject of two major motion pictures. This L.A. Theatre Works production is a full-fledge audio theatre presentation starring vocal talents of Yeardley Smith, Dan Castellaneta, Linda Purl, Nathan Lane. "The Odd Couple" is one of Neil Simon's best, and this audio play version does his wit and playwriting abilities full and complete justice. --Midwest Book Review
