Photo Flash: Granite Theatre Presents BAREFOOT IN THE PARK

Neil Simon's romantic comedy, "Barefoot in the Park", opening June 28, 2019 at the Granite Theatre. "Barefoot in the Park" is described as a rib-tickling comedy. It was nominated for three 1964 Tony Awards and Mike Nichols won the award for Best Director. Producer/Artistic Director for the theatre is David Jepson. The show runs June 28 - July 21, 2019

Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He's a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she's a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. Their new apartment is her most recent find - too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job. 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-in-the-attic, 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... 1964 Tony Award nominee for Best Play. "A Bubbling, Rib-Tickling Comedy." - New York Times. "Critic weeps joyfully...I don't think anybody stopped laughing while the curtain was up last evening." - New York Daily News
