Barefoot in the Park

By Neil Simon

Directed by Dale Nickels

The play's focus is on newlywed couple Corie and Paul Bratter, who are setting up house in a minuscule fifth-floor walkup apartment in a downtown-Manhattan brownstone. Paul is a straight-laced attorney, Corie a far more spontaneous free spirit. The two must contend with a lack of heat, a skylight with a gaping hole, several long flights of stairs, an oddball neighbor, and Corie's well-meaning mother, in addition to adjusting to married life.

"A bubbling, ribtickling comedy." -- N.Y. Times.

"Critic weeps joyfully.... I don't think anybody stopped laughing while the curtain was up last evening." -- N.Y. Daily News.
