Neil Simon’s most beloved romantic comedy, “Barefoot in the Park” opens as blissful, ambitious young newlyweds struggle to get along in their Manhattan fixer-upper apartment, all while under the gaze of the bride’s neurotic mother and the eccentric upstairs neighbor.
In a case of opposites attract – Paul is a successful lawyer known for his conservative and practical nature and Corie a sexy adventure seeker – they quickly face newlywed challenges that can try the best of marriages. Considered one of America’s best rom-coms, “Barefoot in the Park” is among the top 10 longest-running non-musical plays in Broadway history, and it was turned into an Oscar-nominated movie.
