Paris bound


Paris bound
   Philip Barry's three-act comedy premiered at the Music Box Theatre on 27 December 1927 for 234 performances under the direction of Arthur Hopkins and with scene designs by Robert Edmond Jones. After six years of what she believes has been a model happy marriage, Mary Hutton learns that her husband, Jim, has not always been faithful. Angry and intent on divorce, Mary recalls the advice of her father-in-law not to let meaningless infidelities damage their marriage as his had been. Facing the truth of her own flirtation with a young composer, which Jim has chosen to ignore, Mary heeds her father-in-law's advice. Praised by critics for its social commentary and wit, this early success for Barry was a prototype of his sophisticated comedy of manners style. A motion picture version of Paris Bound was released in 1929.
