WSR presents Barefoot in the Park
Married couple Paul and Corie have a new life together—and a new apartment to go with it. But the fifth-floor walkup doesn't seem as cozy to Paul as it does to the more free-spirited Corie, and when her mother pays a surprise visit, their honeymoon bliss threatens to explode into full-on squabbling. Neil Simon's 1963 comedy—later made into a film starring Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, and a lot of good genes—follows the newlyweds as they navigate the tricky waters of compromise and learning how to let loose.
Raue Center For The Arts
When it originally opened in 1929, the Raue Center For The Arts was dubbed "El Tovar," though no one knew what that meant—it was jut a term overheard by one of the venue's founders on a trip to the west coast. Regardless of its meaning (or lack of one), the name seemed to accurately define the theater's elegance, from the star-filled sky of its ceiling to the facades of Spanish buildings lining its walls.
El Tovar drifted into deterioration over the years, undergoing several different monikers as it switched from owner to owner. Luckily, a generous bequest from Crystal Lake resident Lucile Raue led to a much-needed restoration. A two-year renovation left the theater looking as glamorous as it did when it was El Tovar—seats were reupholstered, and every android usher received an oil change.
