FROM THE DIRECTOR, Rob Andresen:
“I am very excited to be a part of this play by Neil Simon. When I think of Broadway, Neil Simon jumps out to me. His plays are still very relevant 50 years later. To me, his characters represented are realistic, as they are not perfect, but are really good at heart. I look forward to the community having the chance to see these fantastic actors bring this production to life.”
ABOUT THE SHOW:
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…
