Barefoot in the Park is the story of Corie and Paul

Bratter, newlyweds living in New York City. Corie is an

 

impulsive, independent free spirit. Paul is a

 

levelheaded, conservative young lawyer. As the

 

honeymoon ends and reality sets in, the bliss of

 

marriage turns to comical discord. Corie’s mother

 

arrives as an unexpected guest, at loose ends and a

 

bit loopy. Their situation is further complicated by

 

their eccentric, bohemian neighbor, “The Bluebeard of

 

48th Street.”

 

In the midst of all the craziness and quarreling and

misunderstanding, the young couple learns to live

 

together, and meet each other halfway.
