Barefoot in the Park Revival to Close May 21

It was announced tonight that the revival of Barefoot in the Park, starring Amanda Peet, Patrick Wilson, Jill Clayburgh and Tony Roberts, will close at the Cort Theatre on Broadway on May 21. The show will have played 27 previews, and 108 regular shows at the time of its closing.

The cast for the star-packed revival of Neil Simon's Barefoot in the Park features Jill Clayburgh and Tony Roberts along with Amanda Peet and Patrick Wilson.

Directed by Scott Elliott (The Women, Three Sisters), the first-ever revival of the show 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) will play Corie's mother, while Tony Roberts (Victor/Victoria and Cabaret on Broadway, Annie Hall) will portray neighbor Victor Velasco. More casting has yet to be announced.

Barefoot in the Park's design team includes Derek McLane (sets),
Isaac Mizrahi (costumes), Jason Lyons (lighting) and Ken Travis (sound).

The original production of Barefoot in the Park, which opened on October 23rd, 1963 at the Biltmore Theatre, starred Elizabeth Ashley and Robert Redford, and played a long run of 1,530 performances. A 1967 film that paired Redford with Jane Fonda then followed; it was directed by Mike Nichols.
