WHAT: Thursday’s opening night bash for “The Odd Couple” — the Broadway revival that was a sold-out smash even before it began performances.
WHO: Neil Simon, who took a bow alongside Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick; show’s Brad Garrett; plus Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Jessica Parker, Doris Roberts and Carole Shelley, one of the stars of the original 1965 production; and others
WHERE: Gotham’s Marriott Marquis, where the Felixes could delicately nibble tea sandwiches, while the Oscars of the bunch could gobble down pigs in blankets.
GARRETT GETS HIS DEGREE: Garrett, who plays poker buddy Murray in the show, is learning a lot in his Broadway debut. “It’s like going to college for me,” he said, “which I never did.”
