Manhattan Theatre Source revives John Ford Noonan's long-running coomedy

Set in Westchester, worlds collide when uptight Maude meets her new neighbor, sexed-up Southerner Hannah Mae. Throughout this zany romp, the mismatched pair fight, scheme, cheat, laugh and love. Can a modern Odd Couple find common ground?

When the play first premiered in 1980 at the Astor Place Theater, the New York Times hailed it "an unusually smart sitcom,". It went on to run for two years, helping launch the careers of Susan Sarandon, JoBeth Williams, Ann Archer and Dixie Carter.

The current production stars Nancy Sirianni*, who is also a successful recording artist, and Monica Russell*, one of the founding members of Transport Group. Ms. Sirianni last starred in the critically acclaimed production of Woyzeck at Manhattan Theatre Source. Martin Denton of NYTheatre.com hailed the production "claustrophobic and rather sensationally vivid.". Ms. Russell received accolades for her performance in last year's All the Way Home. The New York Times called her turn "compelling" while Curtain Up raved that she "grows before our eyes".

Steven Bloom directs.
