In this classic, comedic romp, newlyweds Paul and Corie Bratter are proof positive that opposites attract. He's a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer; she's a free spirit. But they quickly discover married life is no paradise, having to endure a new apartment that's falling to pieces, surprise visits from Corie's overly protective mother, and the antics of their eccentric neighbor-in-the-attic, Velasco. Paul doesn't understand Corie's impulsiveness, while she wants him to be more spontaneous. Maybe running "barefoot in the park" would be a start? This Tony Award-winner went on to become iconic playwright Neil Simon's first and longest running theatrical hit when it premiered 50 years ago.
