‘Barefoot’ takes hike

'Park' set to shutter

“Barefoot in the Park” will put on its shoes and head back indoors next month. The Broadway revival of the Neil Simon comedy, starring Amanda Peet and Patrick Wilson, is set to shutter May 21.

The production expects to pay back about half of its $2 million capitalization by the time it closes, when it will have played 108 perfs and 27 previews.

Producers are in discussions about the possibility of future productions and a national tour.

Since it began performances Jan. 24, “Barefoot” has never cracked $400,000 in weekly grosses. The show took in $242,358 during the week ended Sunday.

“We didn’t have a single losing week,” producer Robyn Goodman said. “But our wraps had started to go down, and the season is starting to get very competitive.”
