Neil Simon’s 1965 Broadway smash “The Odd Couple” – later a movie with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau – then the classic Tony Randall/Jack Klugman TV show – debuts on stage tonight at Mill Mountain Theatre. It runs through October 9th. We all know the story – the fussy “Felix” character is thrown out by his wife and moves into a Manhattan apartment with his unkempt friend Oscar. Its a love-hate relationship and very funny. WFIR’s Gene Marrano spoke to the director and the actors playing Felix and Oscar. Here’s a Longer Listen – beginning with director Jay Briggs:
Virginia voters like Trump on jobs and veterans but prefer Clinton on temperament, experience, policies
From Wason Center: NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Hillary Clinton’s strong lead in Virginia over Donald Trump appears to be rooted solidly in voters’ opinions that she is more qualified to be president than Trump on temperament, experience, and key issues, including military and foreign policy issues, according to a survey released Wednesday by the Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University.
Twice as many voters, 58-28 percent, say that Clinton, not Trump, has the right temperament to be president, and twice as many (60-26 percent) say that she, not Trump, has the right experience. By a close margin, voters say that Trump is more trustworthy and honest than Clinton, 35-32 percent.
