Barefoot in the Park is the story of Corie and Paul

Bratter, newlyweds living in New York City. Corie is an


impulsive, independent free spirit. Paul is a


levelheaded, conservative young lawyer. As the


honeymoon ends and reality sets in, the bliss of


marriage turns to comical discord. Corie’s mother


arrives as an unexpected guest, at loose ends and a


bit loopy. Their situation is further complicated by


their eccentric, bohemian neighbor, “The Bluebeard of


48th Street.”


In the midst of all the craziness and quarreling and

misunderstanding, the young couple learns to live


together, and meet each other halfway.


This Neil Simon hit opened on Broadway on October


23, 1963, and ran for 1530 performances. The original


cast included Elizabeth Ashley, Robert Redford, Mildred


Natwick, and Kurt Kasner.


It was nominated for four Tony Awards and won Best


Director for Mike Nichols.


A film version starring Redford and Jane Fonda was


released in 1967.
