The Oddest Couple

Neil Simon. Big, splashy touring musical. "Hey, big spender" -- va voom, va voom -- "spennnnnd a little time with me." This does not sound artistically promising. However, if you spend your time and money on such big-buck bangs, you'll dig the Broadway revival of Sweet Charity, which stars Paige Davis (TV's Trading Spaces) in a role originally designed for former Brat Packer Molly Ringwald. However, there is one non-rote note for the small-bangers of the world: Simon's theatrical book was based on Fellini's film Nights of Cabiria, and Federico was a fan of Simon's finished product. It's true. We swear.
