I was expecting this to be good, just not as good as the original, but it is! Why haven't I thought of putting Neil Simon on my Favorite Writer list up to now? Shame on me! There are so many quotable and hysterical lines that I couldn't decide which ones to post along with my review - It's all oh so good.
Just a heads up: If you are a fan of the movie I doubt that you will be able to read any of Florence's (Felix Unger) or Olive's (Oscar Madison) lines without picturing Walter Matthau or Jack Lemmon instead. I loved those two in their roles so much that I decided to picture the movie's cast playing their same roles in this play. But instead of meeting at Oscar's to play poker, they meet to play Trivial Pursuit. And instead of the bubbly Pidgeon Sisters, Oscar and Felix have a dinner party with two distinguished gentlemen from Barcelona. If you liked the original, give this one a try.
