From 'Producers' to 'Odd Couple'

They're going to produce an impressive "Odd Couple." (search)

As The Post first reported in January, Nathan Lane (search) and Matthew Broderick (search) will reunite on Broadway for a revival of the Neil Simon comedy.

The play will open next August and will be directed by Joe Mantello, who won a Tony last year for "Assassins."

Mantello, who also helmed "Wicked," will also bring a revival of David Mamet's "Glengarry Glen Ross" to Broadway next spring.

The lead producer will be Emanuel Azenberg, who has produced several of the playwright's works over the years. He has spoken of the project during the past few months, but had not nailed down a start date.

Lane and Broderick will start shooting the film version of the hit musical "The Producers" (search) in January.

The Lane and Broderick re-teaming will be the first time "The Odd Couple" has been revived on Broadway with men in the lead roles.

The 1985 revival starred Rita Moreno and Sally Struthers as Olive and Florence. The 1965 world premiere was headlined by Art Carney and Walter Matthau.
