BAREFOOT IN THE PARK

barefoot1Montana Repertory Theatre celebrates its fiftieth anniversary season with the play that put Neil Simon on the map over fifty years ago. Through comedy, Mr. Simon explores love, relationship, marriage, and family––the pangs of loss and the joy of reunion.

Corie and Paul Bratter are a newlywed couple. For their first home, they live in an apartment on the top floor of a brownstone in New York City. During the course of four days, the couple learns to live together while facing the usual daily ups-and-downs. Corrie wants Paul to become more easy-going: for example, to run “barefoot in the park.” Now one of the most dynamic and respected touring companies in the country, Montana Repertory Theatre was established as a professional touring company in 1967. Montana Rep assembles principle actors, directors, and designers with prestigious credits, including Broadway, Off-Broadway, national tours of Broadway shows, and major regional theatre credits.

Principal roles are played by actors whose past credits have included Broadway runs and national tours (A Chorus Line, Crimes of the Heart, Into the Woods, Biloxi Blues, Steel Magnolias, Pump Boys and Dinettes, My Fair Lady, Cabaret, and The Will Rogers Follies); major motion pictures; the Grand Ole Opry; and productions by the nation’s leading regional theatres.
