Barefoot in the Park
by Lakeway Players

Mar. 29 - Mar. 31
Friday-Sunday

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. Their new apartment is her most recent find – too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job. As the young couple contend with a lack of heat, a skylight that leaks snow, several long flights of stairs, oddball neighbor (in the attic) Victor Velasco, and Corie's well-meaning mother, they must also reconcile their own personal differences in how they approach life's challenges. 

 

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, 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…
