‘Barefoot in the Park’ Plays at McLean Community Players May 1-16, 2015 by Cathy Farnsworth

Barefoot in the Park is about Corie and Paul, two newly-weds who move into a New York City apartment five flights up, with no elevator and plumbing problems. Besides having to cope with the dysfunctional apartment, they have to adjust to their own differences. Paul is a lawyer who is serious about his career, and Corie is a free spirit who wants Paul to be more spontaneous, for example, by running “barefoot in the park.”


Director Jerry Bonnes says, “Opposites attract but the real drama occurs when they collide. Neil Simon’s hilarious Barefoot in the Park takes us on a romp to find out whether the final result is disaster or harmony.

Simon’s timeless comedy not only shows us the wonderful characters on stage but also mirrors back to the audience their own experiences and causes everyone to see the humor that is all around them. The great quality of Neil Simon is that at the end of the evening you feel good about yourself….what better way to spend an evening.”
