The original version of, "The Odd Couple" debuted on Broadway on March 10, 1965, and ran for close to 1,000 performances. Walter Matthau, who originally played Oscar in the Broadway production, went on to star with Jack Lemmon in the film version of the Neil Simon play. Two years later the success of both the play and the film led to the creation of a television series starring Tony Randall and Jack Klugman which enjoyed equal success from 1970-75.

Ten years after the finale of "The Odd Couple" television series, Simon sat down and revised his popular work by switching the male characters with female ones. Many of the classic lines and jokes remain the same, but many new ones are added that appeal to a female audience. Eden noted the changes are, "many, especially the card game. They don't play bridge, they play Trivial Pursuit."
