Woodinville Repertory Theatre is proud to present Barefoot in the Park by Neil Simon.
Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. Their new apartment is her most recent find-too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job. After a six day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. Paul just doesn’t understand Corie, as she sees it. He’s too staid, too boring and she just wants him to be a little more spontaneous, running “barefoot in the park” would be a start…
“A bubbling, rib-tickling comedy.” – The New York Times“Critic weeps joyfully…I don’t think anybody stopped laughing while the curtain was up last evening.” – New York Daily News
Barefoot in the Park was first presented on Broadway by Saint Subber at the Biltmore Theatre in New York City on October 23, 1963. It was directed by Mike Nichols.
