Barefoot in the Park

By Neil Simon

Directed by Frank Peot

Get ready for an evening (or afternoon) of timeless romance and laugh-out-loud humor with this classic Neil Simon comedy.

Meet Paul and Corie Bratter. Two newlyweds. She's free-spirited. He's a bit of a stuffed shirt. Fresh off their honeymoon, we're about to find out if their love can survive the realities of married life.

Not to mention a mother who drops by when she "happens to be in the neighborhood," an eccentric upstairs neighbor who needs to pass through their apartment to get to his own and the five flights of stairs one must climb to get to their brownstone apartment full of "charming" quirks.

No matter what happens to these two, you'll find yourself laughing at the same antics and misunderstandings that couples have faced for generations.
