As funny as the poker patter is with a quartet of Trinity regulars, things really get uproarious when the batty British Pigeon sisters, upstairs neighbors, show up for a date, giddy and cooing. Phyllis Kay as Gwendolyn and Nance Williamson as Cecily are hands-down hilarious. Williamson in particular — she comes up with an outrageous, slack-jawed laugh that shouldn’t work, it’s so exaggerated, but does through sheer, over-the-top assault.
And when Felix has reduced them to commiserating, wailing tears with his talk of divorce, and Oscar enters with a tray of cocktails and an “Is everybody happy?,” it’s priceless. My personal laff-meter high point was when Sullivan, as Oscar tries to flip out Felix, one-ups his stomping on the sofa while chomping potato chips by wiping his mouth with a throw pillow.
The Odd Couple, what a team. Oscar and Felix are doing their best to last for as long as domestic squabbling itself does.
