Barefoot In The Park Opens At Cassidy Theatre February 2

The Cassidy Theatre will present its production of the Neil Simon classic, “Barefoot in the Park,” from February 2-18, 2018.

The first production of the Cassidy’s 2018 season, the play includes the following cast members, directed by Dan Sekanic:

Katie Simon Atkinson                               Corie

Louis Petrucci                                             Paul

Dave Hopkins                                             Repairman

Mike Kunikis                                                Velasco

Marybeth Orr                                               Mother

Production staff includes Stage Assistant Steve DeLuca, Prop master Louis Petrucci, Stage Manager Jen Sindyla and Sekanic.

Here’s a brief synopsis of the show:

Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. He’s a straight-as-an-arrow lawyer and she’s a free spirit always looking for the latest kick. Their new apartment is her most recent find – too expensive with bad plumbing and in need of a paint job. After a six-day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie’s loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic, Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does. 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. Running “barefoot in the park” would be a start.

"The mission of Cassidy Theatre is to enrich the multicultural life of the Greater Cleveland area by providing a diverse theatre arts program that entertains, informs and educates."
