With the recent passing of playwright Neil Simon, JCLT wanted to bring one of his beloved plays to the stage. Barefoot in the Park is about a newlywed couple in every sense of the word. Paul’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and Corie’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. After a six-day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s mother and decide to play matchmaker with their neighbor-in-the-attic and where everything that can go wrong, does. Paul just doesn’t understand Corie, as she sees it. She just wants him to be a little more spontaneous.
This is the perfect show to bring your sweetheart to for Valentine’s day and we couldn’t think of anyone better than
Veteran Director Brent Sigman to take on this masterpiece!
