"Delightfully hilarious and witty ... a genuinely brilliant play."
New York Post

In this freshly conceived production of Neil Simon’s classic by the acclaimed Walnut Street Theatre, true comedy ensues when a modern man faced with a midlife crisis looks for something new and different, but ends up finding himself in the same situation, again and again! It’s America in the hip sixties, and Barney Cashman is married, overworked and overweight. It’s finally his turn to join the sexual revolution … before it’s too late. With no experience in covert maneuvers, he arranges three attempted trysts. His targets: a bawdy bundle of fun who likes other women’s husbands, a young actress too kooky for words, and a neurotic housewife who is married to his best friend. Though mishaps and laughter, Barney rediscovers his humanity and what he thought he was missing all along. Established in 1809, Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia is America’s oldest theatre. Boasting the largest subscription audience in the world, it is home to many pre-Broadway tryouts of plays that are now American classics. www.walnutstreettheatre.org
