A popular RomanticComedy by Neil Simon which premiered on Broadway in 1963.

Newlyweds Corie and Paul Bratter return from their honeymoon ready to start their exciting new life together in a minuscule fifth-floor walkup apartment in a downtown-[[UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity Manhattan]] brownstone, but things aren't exactly going as planned. The impulsive Corie's apartment choice doesn't meet Paul's - or any sane person's - standards. Six exhausting flights of stairs lead to a one-room apartment which lacks bathtub, furniture, heat, and room for a double bed. What highlights does the apartment supply? Quirky neighbors, including oddball neighbor Victor Velasco, and a giant hole in the skylight.

Made into [[TheMovie a movie]] in 1967, starring Creator/RobertRedford as Paul (he played the role on Broadway too) and Creator/JaneFonda as Corie. The play has also received two TV adaptations: a short-lived Creator/{{ABC}} {{sitcom}} in 1970, and a 1980 special on {{HBO}}.
