Newlyweds Paul and Corie are just starting their life together in a tiny fifth-floor Manhattan apartment. He's a straight-laced lawyer and she's a free spirit who's always looking for the latest adventure. Paul doesn't understand Corie's relaxed ways, and she wants him to be just a little more spontaneous. Something as simple as running "barefoot in the park" would be a start. Throw in a New York brownstone in disrepair, an eccentric neighbor and a surprise visit from Corie's mother, and watching the ups and downs of married life has never been so enjoyable. This Tony-nominated comedy from Neil Simon is filled with the playwright's trademark witty repartee and hilarious characters. Learn More

The acting was very good. The plot was weak at best. It appears that the author inserted shocking dialog simply for the sake of shock. Every type of depravity was brought out...masturbation, pedophilia, the killing of babes, etc. I would not recommend this production.
Directed by Jennifer Decker and featuring Patricia Duran, Bobby Haworth, HR Bradford, Jon Harvey, Courtney Lomelo, Christie Stryk, Amy Warren and Ron Reeder.
About the Ticket Supplier: Mildred's Umbrella Theater CompanyMildred's Umbrella began in 2001 when local actress Jennifer Decker and poet and playwright John Harvey (Ph.D., University of Houston Creative Writing Dept.) decided to bring together a group of artists and actors to create a collaborative theatrical piece written by John Harvey. The production was a success, earning positive press attention and the attention of many other local artists who wanted to be involved in future productions, and inspired the duo to achieve non-profit status and make plans for another production.
Over the course of several years and under the energetic guidance of artistic director Jennifer Decker, Mildred's Umbrella has expanded to also staging Houston premieres of work from other playwrights and to searching out opportunities for creative collaborations with other local theater groups and artists.
