Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Theatre 98 brings back Neil Simon’s blockbuster hit tale of dysfunction amidst the sexual revolution. For the uninitiated, the story centers around Barney Cashman, a run-of-the-mill middle-aged putz feelilng left out of the libidinous liberties raging around him. In setting out to change his exclusion, Cashman’s entanglements with a series of potential partners make it obvious that hooking up isn’t as painless as everyone around Barney makes it appear.
The show opened on Broadway in 1969 and ran for over 700 performances before closing. Critics deemed it another triumph for the then-white hot playwright.
Curtain is at 8 p.m., Wednesday – Saturday. Sunday matinees are at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $18, $12 for students.
