NEW YORK (AP) — Playwright Neil Simon, a master of comedy whose
laugh-filled hits such as "The Odd Couple," ”Barefoot in the Park" and
his "Brighton Beach" trilogy dominated Broadway for decades, has died.

A longtime friend said Simon died early Sunday of complications from
pneumonia surrounded by family at New York Presbyterian Hospital in
Manhattan.
