7/2: The Odd Couple at Porthouse

5675/1246396873-odd_couple.jpgThe Odd Couple is more or less based on the premise: What if two guys were married to each other and bickered like a husband and wife who’ve been together way too long? Neil Simon’s popular play seems destined to be among the most durable pieces of American theater of the 20th century. Rohn Thomas directs Porthouse Theatre’s production, which stars Kent State University prof Eric van Baars as the tidy Felix Unger and John Woodson — a familiar face on Cleveland Playhouse stages since the Peter Hackett era — as the messy Oscar Madison. It opens at 8 tonight at Blossom Music Center’s Porthouse Theatre (1145 W. Steels Corners Rd., Cuyahoga Falls, 330.672.3884). Showtimes are 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays, through July 18. Tickets: $13-$33. — Michael Gill
