Barefoot in the Park is about a newly-wedded couple residing in a small Manhattan apartment.  The film version starred Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. 

Annie Brzozowski and Danny Pennacchi star in this hilarious comedy as the Bratters. Never have a couple been so much in love. They’re a match made in heaven—or are they? She’s free-spirited and fun loving, he’s practical and level-headed with definite stick-in-the-mud tendencies.  Together, they prove that opposites do attract. 

In February, Ms. Brzozwski starred as Nikki Harris, the absent-minded, but well-meaning lead in Playhouse 22’s hit musical Curtains.  Mr. Pennacchi, a newcomer to the Playhouse 22 stage, recently starred in the award-winning independent film A Safe House

Veteran director Mary Lynn Dobson’s original work, Two on the Aisle, Three in a Van, was performed in the NYC Fringe Festival garnering the 2010 Summer Theatre Citation for Outstanding New Play as well as being awarded Best Ensemble Cast. Her newest comedy Skin Deep, was a winner in the Samuel French Off-Off Broadway Short Play Festival and was recently published by Samuel French in 2011. Skin Deep was also performed and named a winner of the Shortened Attention Span One-Act Festival and the Frostburg University One-Act Competition. Ms. Dobson’s other published works has been staged throughout North America.
