Joining Williamson will be Todd Lawson, most recently seen by Broadway audiences in the revival of Summer and Smoke. Rounding out the cast are Susan Bigelow, Robert Lydiard and Frank Stellato. Barefoot in the Park "is the classic romantic comedy about a conservative young lawyer Paul Bratter and his free-spirited newlywed bride Corie," according to press notes. "The comedy follows the young couple as they move from the giddy joy of a six-day honeymoon at The Plaza, into the crazy reality of starting married life in a fifth-floor walkup in New York City. Of course it doesn't help that the apartment is absolutely bare of furniture, the paint job came out all wrong, the skylight leaks snow, there isn't room for a double bed, and an outlandish neighbor who lives in a loft on the roof uses it, and the window ledge, as the only access to his padlocked premises."
Neil Simon's classic opened on Broadway in 1963, directed by Mike Nichols, starring Robert Redford and Elizabeth Ashley. The popular hit would run for 1,530 performances, with Redford joining Jane Fonda for the 1967 film version. The recent 2006 Broadway revival starred Amanda Peet and Patrick Wilson.
Patricia Zaback will direct with a creative team including Robin McGee (costume designer), Travis C. Richardson (lighting designer) and Joseph Egan (set designer). Casting is by Stephen DeAngelis.
