"Barefoot In The Park" Opens (Briefly)

The reviews are in for the latest Neil Simon revival Barefoot in the Park. And the show, presumably, will soon be out. It's across-the-board pans for the show from the NY Daily News, Variety, Hollywood Reporter, a middling pan from the NY Post and a cruel one from the New York Times which calls the revival torturous and says when the show opens with the newlywed wallpapering her apartment, she should have been seen painting it. "Then at least the audience would have the diversion of watching it dry." Ouch.

I'm falling asleep just reading about it. Why bother?

Second-tier Neil Simon (and the first tier ain't that grand mostly either).
