Barefoot in the Park at the Ivoryton Playhouse

If you love the work of Neil Simon, then you should make a trip to the Ivoryton Playhouse to see Barefoot in the Park. This play is directed by Bruce Connolly who was  in last season's Barnum and Finnian's Rainbow.

The story is based on Neil Simon's first marriage.
Kathleen Mulready plays Corie who was recently seen in The Irish And How They Got That Way. Corie is all about fun and risk and being the housewife, but wouldn't you be too, if this was your first marriage and Kathleen does a wonderful job at getting the message across.
Sean Patrick Hopkins is Paul, the conservative lawyer, and first time husband.  He definitely fills the shoes of Robert Redford in this play. 
This show can definitely take people back especially since this is a household with only one telephone and no computer.   Those were the days. .. To climb up all those steps the best way to communicate would be with cell phones. 
Get out to the theater and see Barefoot in the Park. Go see those frozen skinny lovers who live on 49 West 10th Street The show is excellent.
