We’re delighted to announce that we’ve just completed casting for the first show of our 2015-16 season, Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park, directed by Michael Driscoll. We can’t wait to introduce you to the talented team that will bring this comedic masterpiece to life!
About the play:
Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds just back from their honeymoon – he’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she’s an impulsive romantic always looking for the latest kick. When Corie’s loopy, widowed mother drops in for a surprise visit, the couple decides to play matchmaker during a dinner with their upstairs neighbor, Victor. During the meal, everything that can go wrong – does.
