Rated: PG-13

Barefoot in the Park is one of the most beloved comedies of Neil Simon. Newlyweds Corie and Paul Bratter are over the moon to begin their life together in their new apartment in Manhattan. It may be small and a six-flight climb, the heating may be busted and snow may be falling through the skylight, but nothing can quash their newlywed bliss. Paul is a straight-laced lawyer and Corie a romantic free-spirit; nevertheless, opposites attract and the two are wild about each other. Corie decides to set her conservative widowed mother up with their eccentric, bohemian neighbor. A wild night ensues, one that highlights just how different Corie and Paul are. The young couple must learn how to accept and embrace their differences as they learn that marriage is no easy walk in the park.

In this cult classic, sweethearts Brad and Janet discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite scientist.  As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler.  Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation:  a muscular man named “Rocky”.  Complete with sass from the audience, cascading toilet paper and an array of other audience participation, this deliberately kitschy rock ’n’ roll sci-fi gothic musical is more fun than ever.
