February 17, 2006: THE mistakes begin with the wallpaper. When the curtain rises on the torturous new revival of Neil Simon's "Barefoot in the Park," the play's eager newlywed heroine (portrayed by Amanda Peet) is discovered applying, with laborious comic inefficiency, hypnotically striped paper to the walls of her first apartment. Not to put a damper on a young bride's early adventures in decorating, but instead of gluing on wallpaper, shouldn't she be slapping on paint? Then at least the audience would have the diversion of watching it dry.READ THE REVIEW

Neil Simon's second play, Barefoot in the Park, is the classic romantic comedy about a conservative young lawyer Paul Bratter and his free-spirited newlywed bride Corie. The comedy follows the young couple as they move from the giddy joy of the honeymoon at The Plaza into the crazy reality of starting married life in a fifth-floor walkup in New York City. The production stars Amanda Peet, Patrick Wilson, Jill Clayburgh, and Tony Roberts.
