Queens Theatre takes you back to New York City of the early 1960s in Neil Simon's biggest hit, Barefoot in the Park. Newlyweds Corie and Paul have just checked out of a six-day stay at The Plaza and into their new home, a fifth-floor walkup with no bathtub, little heat and a hole in the skylight-apparently the honeymoon is over. Straitlaced lawyer Paul and free-spirit Corie didn't know each other long before they were married, and the reality of day-to-day living begins to put a strain on their young marriage. Add in Corie's mother, who pops in regularly from New Jersey, and an eccentric upstairs neighbor who uses the couple's window to crawl home, and you have all the ingredients for a breezy comedy where love ultimately conquers all.
