SAN DIEGO (July 10, 2018)—The Old Globe’s 2018 Summer Season continues with today’s announcement of the complete cast and creative team for Barefoot in the Park, as director Jessica Stone (Ken Ludwig’s Robin Hood!, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike) returns to the Globe to extend its decades-long relationship with giant comic playwright Neil Simon with this fresh and hilarious new look at his “bubbling, rib-tickling comedy” (The New York Times). Barefoot in the Park will play July 28 – September 2, 2018 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Tickets start at $30.00 and are on sale to the general public now. Previews run July 28 – August 1. Opening night is Thursday, August 2 at 8:00 p.m.

Fresh off a honeymoon at the Plaza Hotel, free-spirited Corie and her buttoned-down husband Paul find themselves struggling to adjust to married life in their run-down New York walk-up. Throw in a loopy meddling mother, an eccentric Bohemian upstairs neighbor, and a double date that goes disastrously wrong, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for laughter.

The cast includes Kerry Bishé as Corie Bratter (“Halt and Catch Fire,” “Narcos,” “Billions,” Argo, Pygmalion on Broadway, My Name Is Rachel Corrie Off Broadway), Jere Burns as Victor Velasco (Broadway’s After the Night and the Music and Hairspray, “Angie Tribeca,” “I’m Dying Up Here,” Incredibles 2), Mia Dillon as Mrs. Ethel Banks (original Broadway cast of Crimes of the Heart, Our Town with Paul Newman, The Miser, Hay Fever, The Cherry Orchard at La Jolla Playhouse), and Chris Lowell as Paul Bratter (“GLOW,” “Private Practice,” “Veronica Mars,” The Help, Off Broadway’s Jacuzzi); with Ed Hollingsworth as Deliveryman (the Globe’s Guys and Dolls) and Jake Millgard as Telephone Repairman and Deliveryman (the Globe’s Benny & Joon, Guys and Dolls, more).

The creative team includes Tobin Ost (Scenic Design), David Israel Reynoso (Costume Design), Amanda Zieve (Lighting Design), Lindsay Jones (Sound Design), Caparelliotis Casting (Casting), and Libby Unsworth (Production Stage Manager).

“Summertime at the Globe means laughter and fun, and no one delivers both better than Neil Simon,” said Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein. “Barefoot in the Park is a sweet, funny play about how delightful it is to figure out how to build a life that balances life, work, and love. In Corie and Paul, the young newlywed couple at the center of the story, the play reflects to all of us our best selves and reminds us that sometimes we all need to kick off our shoes and dance in the grass. Neil Simon is a towering figure in the American theatre, and we are thrilled to continue the Globe’s decades-long relationship with him. It’s also a treat to have the great comic director Jessica Stone back in San Diego. She and her crack team have put together a summer ice cream cone of a show, and I can’t wait to share it with our audience.”

His plays and musicals include Come Blow Your Horn; Little Me; Barefoot in the Park; The Odd Couple; Sweet Charity; The Star-Spangled Girl; Plaza Suite; Promises, Promises; Last of the Red Hot Lovers; The Gingerbread Lady; The Prisoner of Second Avenue; The Sunshine Boys; The Good Doctor; God’s Favorite; California Suite; Chapter Two; They’re Playing Our Song; I Ought to Be in Pictures; Fools; Brighton Beach Memoirs; Biloxi Blues; Broadway Bound; Rumors; Lost in Yonkers; Jake’s Women; The Goodbye Girl; Laughter on the 23rd Floor; London Suite; Proposals; Hotel Suite; The Dinner Party; 45 Seconds from Broadway; Oscar and Felix; and Rose’s Dilemma.
