“The Odd Couple” opened on Broadway in 1965 starring Art Carney as Felix and Walter Matthau as Oscar. Since then, it has been revived on Broadway, the latest revival being in 2005 starring Nathan Lane as Oscar and Matthew Broderick as Felix, fresh from their run in Mel Brooks’ “The Producers”. There has been a movie adaptation, several television adaptations, and there was even plans for a film adaptation starring Robin Williams and Billy Crystal.
