NEW MILFORD , CONN. (January 10, 2014) – TheatreWorks New Milford will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Neil Simon's first and longest-running theatrical hit, BAREFOOT IN THE PARK, by kicking off its 2014 season with that very show.
In this classic, comedic romp, newlyweds Paul and Corie Bratter are proof positive that opposites attract. He's a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer; she's a free spirit. But they quickly discover married life is no paradise, having to endure a new apartment that's falling to pieces, surprise visits from Corie's overly protective mother, and the antics of their eccentric neighbor-in-the-attic, Velasco. Paul doesn't understand Corie's impulsiveness, while she wants him to be more spontaneous. Maybe running "barefoot in the park" would be a start?
BAREFOOT IN THE PARK is under the direction of Tom Libonate of Danbury .
The production features six of the region’s finest actors: Daniel Willey (Harwinton), Elizabeth Talbot ( Woodbridge ), Jeff Savage ( Northfield ), M.J. Hartell ( Brookfield ), Jonathan Ross (Thomaston), and Kevin Sosbe ( New Milford ).
