In this classic Neil Simon comedy, two newlyweds move into an apartment in Greenwich Village. Corie tries to find a companion for her lonely mother and sets her up with her eccentric neighbor. Some inappropriate behavior on a double date causes conflict, and their new marriage is turned upside down. This show is rated PG-13 for minor language and content.

Barefoot in the Park​ director J.R. Stuart shared, “W​ ith Neil Simon’s recent passing, I’ve been reminded of how painstakingly clever, witty, and passionate a playwright he was. The constant laughter borne out of the situation from characters so keenly developed that you root for them, the genius construction of his plays, the huge heart that is the key to his success all combine to make it a joy to be working on this classic American Broadway comedy. I’ve got a first-rate cast and a gorgeous set thanks to Chris Bundy. We’re all looking forward to getting this fantastic show in front of an audience!”
