The Coaster Theatre is proud to present Neil Simon's "Barefoot in the Park," showing May 5-28 at the theater, 108 N. Hemlock Street in Cannon Beach.
Barefoot in the Park is a romantic comedy about a pair of newlyweds, Corie and Paul, as they begin married life in a tiny, 5th-floor walkup apartment in a Manhattan brownstone. He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she 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, and Corie’s well-meaning mother, they must also reconcile their own personal differences. Paul just doesn’t understand Corie, as she sees it he’s too staid, too boring and she just wants him to be a little more spontaneous. Adjusting to married life isn’t so easy!
CAUTIONS: If this were a movie it would be rated PG. Barefoot in the Park includes mild adult themes. Pre-teens & teens who watch prime-time TV won’t see much to shock them, but depending on the personality and exposure of your younger children, they may be confused. Your own judgment is the best guide for your family.
