No Shoes Required

Paul and Corrie Bratter are newlyweds who have just successfully moved into their first apartment, selected by the new Mrs. Bratter. It's a five-story walkup packed to the rafters with lunatics, particularly the delightfully eccentric Victor Velasco. The free-spirited Corrie loves the adventure and novelty of it all, but for the buttoned-down Paul, the whole building is a nightmare. The fact that his mother-in-law makes a habit of popping in unexpectedly is not easing his tension, which finally erupts in a vicious fight with his new bride. Getting married is a big step, but staying married — that's a step that rivals the walkup. Neil Simon's Barefoot in the Park is classic Simon from its machine-gun patter of jokes and one-liners right down to its madcap denouement. Clayton Community Theatre performs Barefoot in the Park at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (April 22 through May 1) at Washington University's South Campus Theatre (6501 Clayton Road, Richmond Heights; 314-721-9228 or Tickets are $12 to $15.
