Barefoot in the Park | [Neil Simon]

Barefoot in the Park

A brand new lawyer and his young bride have returned from their honeymoon and are moving into their new high-rent apartment. In order to reach this "charming" dwelling, they must first climb six creaking flights of stairs. Once there, they find the place is absolutely bare of furniture, the paint job is all wrong, the skylight leaks, there is room for only one twin bed, and the wacky neighbors pop up at the worst times.

    "As much fun as the movie"

    This was as much fun as the movie. My favorite version was always Richard Thomas and Bess Armstrong on stage, but this rivals even that.

    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed listening to this performance. The characters are quirky and the performance factor with sound effects and awesome acting made this performance a step above.

    "Classic Neil Simon"

    Likeable characters are portrayed with humour and skill by the actors in this production.
    I particularly liked the character of Cora Bratter's mother.

    "Have always loved the movie!"

    I always loved this movie and now I can take it with me everywhere! Neil Simon always makes me laugh out loud with his writing and the cast was perfect for this!

    "Made me think I might want to see the movie"

    It's dated but it's sweet and I enjoyed it.
    It's a taste from a past that I remember fondly.

    "Nice Neil Simon Interpretation!"

    Nice interpretation of Simon's Barefoot in the park! The one liners that Simon incorporated into his work are masterful and almost a forgotten art form.

    Recommend to any literary or theatre enthusiast.

    "Newsflash, Neil Simon is awesome"

    What an awesomely funny and quirky work!!! I'd forgotten how much I loved Simon... The radio production style w/ the fx turned it into an incredibly entertaining couple of hours... It's short, so don't know if I'd pay full freight for a short work, but it was definitely worth the daily deal price...

    "Wonderful fun"

    The performances were well done. It was a fun listen. Laura Linney reminded me so much of Jane Fonda. Nice to listen to a story with a happy ending...
