Crest Theatre at Old School Square presents the 2017 National Tour of Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park.
Neil Simon’s 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 walk-up 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.
The play premiered on Broadway in 1963 and starred Robert Redford and Elizabeth Ashley. The play was made into a film in 1967, also starring Redford, and Jane Fonda. Friday, 8 p.m.; Saturday, 2 & 8 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m.; tickets $57/$47
