Starting tonight, The Odd Couple (Female Version) is coming to The Center for Arts in Natick.

The feminized take on the classic roommate mismatch is based on the Tony Award-winning 1965 stage classic starring Walter Matthau and Art Carney and later became a hit TV show.

The Odd Couple (Female Version) fast-forwards to the 1980s and replaces the bachelors with female alter-egos. Legendary playwright Neil Simon co-wrote this feminized version of his bachelor comedy, which enjoyed a yearlong run on Broadway in 1985 starring Sally Struthers and Rita Moreno.

The Odd Couple (Female Version) runs March 23 through April 1. Tickets are $18, available at the TCAN box office at 14 Summer St., Natick, by phone at (508) 647-0097 or www.natickarts.org
