Barefoot in the Park: Neil Simon’s Classic Romantic Comedy
Stella Adler Theatre (Hollywood, CA)
Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park is a Tony-nominated comedy about newlyweds Paul and Corie Bratter, who move into a dilapidated New York brownstone apartment. Faced with reality after their honeymoon high, the young couple clashes over the building’s disrepair, their eccentric neighbor, and a surprise visit from Corie’s mother. At the heart of all the arguments is the main issue: Corie’s free-spirited ways vs. Paul’s more conventional personality and whether they can learn to live with their differences in the long term. Filled with Neil Simon’s witty repartee and hilarious characterization, this charming, playful comedy about the ups and downs of married life will have you rooting for the Bratters and for true love.
