Barefoot in the Park

Neil Simon's Barefoot in the Park is a romantic comedy focusing on a pair of newlyweds, Corie (played by Tiffany Gauntt) and Paul (played by Justin Hughes), as they begin married life in a tiny, 5th-floor walk-up apartment in a Manhattan brownstone. Paul is a strait-laced attorney, while Corie has a far more spontaneous, free spirit.

 As the young couple contend with a lack of heat, a skylight that leaks snow, several long flights of stairs, oddball neighbor Victor Velasco (played by Tim Hogle), and Corie's well-meaning mother (played by Pat Harris), they must also reconcile their own personal differences in how they approach life's challenges. Adjusting to married life isn't so easy!

Frank McCuller will reprise his role as the delivery man.
