Barefoot in the Park (play)
Admission: $20 with discounts for students, seniors, and groups

It has been 51 years since Neil Simon’s Barefoot in the Park opened on Broadway, where it ran for 4 years and was Simon’s longest running hit. This expertly crafted comedy straddles the divide between the comfortable 1950’s and the chaotic late 1960s. A newlywed couple and a middle-aged pair hilariously wrestle with the conflict between responsibility and spontaneity, as well as a long flight of stairs. Directed by Terry Layman.

Bus Stop (play)
Admission: $20 with discounts for students, seniors, and groups

William Inge invited us all to have a picnic at his Bus Stop first in 1955. It was a great and surprising comic turn for a fellow thought of as…dramatic. Like the greatest of American plays, it occurs in a bar/restaurant. This one is a coffee shop diner, a bit the worse the for wear, which is a short stop for the bus lines running through in the middle of howling snowstorm. Cowboy Bo and chanteuse Cherie lead us though the visit with what the New York Times described at the time as '...an uproarious comedy that never strays from the truth.' Directed by Michael John McGann.
