Garrett and Frechette Complete Cast of The Odd Couple Revival logo
Brad Garrett and Peter Frechette will join the previously announced Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Lee Wilkof, Rob Bartlett, Jessica Stone, and Olivia D'Abo in the upcoming Broadway revival of Neil Simon's The Odd Couple. The show is scheduled to begin preview performances at the Brooks Atkinson Theater on October 4 of this year, with an official opening set for October 27.

Under the direction of Joe Mantello, Lane will play the messy sportswriter Oscar Madison and Broderick will play the finicky photographer Felix Unger. The pair was last seen together on Broadway in The Producers, which earned Lane a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical and Broderick a nomination in the same category.

Garrett, the Emmy-winning star of Everybody Loves Raymond, has been cast as Murray the cop. Frechette, Wilkoff, and Bartlett will play poker players Roy, Vinnie, and Speed, respectively. (Last week, Bartlett joined the cast of Broadway's Sweet Charity, replacing Ernie Sabella in the role of Herman.) Stone and D'Abo will appear as Brit sisters Cecily and Gwendolyn Pigeon.

Tickets to The Odd Couple went on sale to select American Express cardholders and group buyers on June 6; reportedly, the show has already tallied sales in excess of $5 million. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on July 5.
