BWW Video Show Preview: Barefoot In The Park

The first-ever revival of Neil Simon's Barefoot in the Park opened at the Cort Theatre on February 16th after beginning previews on January 24th.

Directed by Scott Elliott (The Women, Three Sisters), the romantic comedy stars Amanda Peet (Neil LaBute's This is How It Goes, films such as A Lot Like Love and Melinda and Melinda) as Corie, a Greenwich Village bohemian, and Patrick Wilson (The Phantom of the Opera film, "Angels in America," The Full Monty) as Paul, a low-key lawyer. Newlyweds, the two must learn to adjust to lifestyle differences. Jill Clayburgh (A Naked Girl on the Appian Way, the films An Unmarried Woman and Starting Over) plays Corie's mother, while Tony Roberts (Victor/Victoria and Cabaret on Broadway, Annie Hall) portrays neighbor Victor Velasco. The show, directed by Mike Nichols, originally opened on Broadway in 1963 for a run of 1,530 performances; a film with original star Robert Redford and Jane Fonda followed.
