The Odd Couple
Presented by Monticello Opera House at Monticello Opera House
Mar 24, 2017 - Apr 08, 2017 


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 as The Odd Couple is born.

Carlisle Floyd's "Prince of Players"
Presented by Florida State University College of Music at Opperman Music Hall - Florida State University
Mar 30, 2017 - Apr 02, 2017 


Based on the stage play Compleat Female Stage Beauty by Jeffrey Hatcher, Prince of Players is the tale of Restoration-era actor Edward Kynaston, heralded as the greatest portrayer of female characters in a time when only men were permitted onstage. King Charles II, in an effort to please his favored mistress, actress Nell Gwynn, decrees that only women shall play female characters on the stage. Kynaston, who has only ever played female roles, must rediscover his talent if he has any hope of continuing a life on the stage. With the assistance of his dresser turned actress, Margaret Hughes, he struggles to recast his identity as an actor.
