October 21, 2014

Before romantic comedies fell victim to saccharine, sap-bearing stereotypes, there was Neil Simon. The famous playwright knew how to subtly illustrate the battle of the sexes with witty wisecracks and genuine affection, and one of his best examples is Barefoot in the Park, the 1962 Broadway smash that was turned into a movie starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda in 1967.
The three-act comedy finds its way to Woodland Theatre in Kettle Falls, where it opens this Friday.
