HPU Theatre: Barefoot in the Park

November 17, 2017

07:30 PM - 09:30 PM

Paul and Vi Loo Theatre

Eden Lee Murray, edenlee.murray@hpu.edu

Early work from one of the most popular playwrights in the history of American theatre, this "bubbling, rib-tickling comedy" (NYT review) ran for 1,530 performances on Broadway, and was nominated for 3 1964 Tony awards. We expect it to sparkle on our stage this fall.

As they settle into their 6th floor walk-up apartment, young, NYC newlyweds Paul and Corie Bratter discover marriage is more than a rosy honeymoon romp. Laughs abound as we watch them navigate the bumps enroute to a balanced relationship. Spoiler alert: one of them actually winds up barefoot in snow-covered Central Park to prove a point. Along the way there’s a hilarious blind date between Corie’s mom and the eccentric aging bohemian neighbor from upstairs. Neil Simon’s brilliant comic dialogue skips along throughout as he gives us memorable moments with these delightful characters. Not to be missed!
