About This Show
Celebrating their 50th anniversary season, Montana Repertory Theatre presents a revival of the show that put Neil Simon on the map over fifty years ago. Mr. Simon, like Molière, is a genius of comedy and of the human heart. Through comedy, Simon explores love, relationship, marriage, and family - the pangs of loss and the joy of reunion.
Barefoot in the Park is a romantic comedy focusing on a pair of newlyweds, Corie and Paul, as they begin married life in a tiny, 5th-floor walkup apartment in a Manhattan brownstone. Paul is a strait-laced attorney; Corie has a far more spontaneous, free spirit. As the young couple contend with a lack of heat, a skylight that leaks snow, several long flights of stairs, oddball neighbor Victor Velasco, and Corie's well-meaning mother, they must also reconcile their own personal differences in how they approach life's challenges. Adjusting to married life isn't so easy!View the Montana Repertory Theatre presents Neil Simon's Barefoot in the Park Website
