Perfect light read for an lazy afternoon. The movie is a delight as well. Nov 28, Rainey rated it it was amazing Shelves: I wish I could see it performed. Feb 12, Realini rated it it was amazing Shelves: Butterflies Are Free by Leonard Gershe Another version of this note and thoughts on other books are available at: When the work in question is a film adaptation, I had doubts and this is only the second note on such material.

This was such an extraordinary joy that I need to express my complete satisfaction and a gratitude for the creators. And the performers of this magic play, starting wit Butterflies Are Free by Leonard Gershe Another version of this note and thoughts on other books are available at: And the performers of this magic play, starting with Goldie Hawn, continuing with Edward Albert and last but not least with Eileen Heckart who not only won the Academy Award for her acting, but also has some wonderful lines.

The themes are powerful, worthwhile, thought provoking, challenging and treated with seriousness but also humor. Jill Tanner moves into an apartment right next to Don Baker, who in the first place seems to be looking persistently at her. So one of the major subjects is blindness, disability and being different, for we also have included in the smart and stupendous dialogue homosexuality and other interesting points, expressed with openness.

This is the age of the hippy culture and Jill admits that she has been through that stage, lying naked on the beach.

She has been through a lot of experiments, including a six days long marriage and a subsequent divorce. On zre plus side, buttfrflies is a sensational heroine- intelligent and with bjtterflies good EQ, beautiful, open minded, curious and brave. She likes Don and engages with him, not worried about his blindness and without second thoughts, somewhat recklessly gree might say.

There is a lot of humor in what could have been the depressing tale of a blind young man who falls for a superficial, unstable neighbor: In fact she took to wearing sandals and rags – She was married four times… – Why? With The Donald as their elected choice, one is bemused by the accuracy of a statement that is perhaps 50 years old And later on Mrs. Baker, with her perceptive irony scolds the young Jill for her appearance and short lived marriage: Have we seen you in anything else except your underwear — which Jill is wearing when mother visits – You were married for six days?

What did you do on the seventh…rest? I was enthused, mesmerized by this unique masterpiece: Aug 27, Zack rated it liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

This play was charming, witty, brilliant and ridiculous. It has an adorable, yes I said adorable, storyline, was very easy to read, had great flow and overall was just enchanting. It had me giggling repeatedly, well alright truth: I was holding back snorts and guffawing, laughing my charmed butt off. My first read with Mr. Leonard Gershe, he does not disappoint. I was tantalized into the play right off the bat with its vershe witty banter and comedic appeal.

I really mu Absolutely amazing! The reason I picked him up was because I’m to read a monologue from Jill, gershr protagonist in the play standing alongside Don, male lead, I’m honestly very happy I did. I believe I had such a wonderful enraptured experience with this play because it resembled a Romance novel. And if you know me, I am a junkie on Romance! And what is absolutely amazing, for me, is a good aka earth-shattering romance packed in comedy, wit, and a punch of absurd!


Anyhoo this is a definite read, if you don’t read the script you should at least try watching the play.

Dec 15, Mia rated it liked it Shelves: Funny dialog and great characters. I loved ,eonard the characters didn’t fit into nice, neat little molds.

They broke away from cliches and it really added dimension. It deals with themes of: If you liked the butterfiles tone of Barefoot in the Park you’d probably enjoy Butterflies are Free. Barefoot in the Park doesn’t butterfliee as much depth, but they’re similar in humor. Jul 28, Eric Mikols rated it liked it Shelves: A fun little story. It feels much more focused than other plays I’ve read. I like the characters and there’s some great dialog.

While it never reached the hilarious proportions of reading Crimes of the Heart or the Old Couple, I think this one would be great to see on stage. Jun 09, Jennifer rated it liked it.

Cute and displaying potential to be engaging on stage, this play has dynamic characters that change in a satisfying, albeit too quick way. A one day timeline?

Jan 18, Marc rated it liked it Shelves: Saw the movie ages ago with Goldie Hawn but never read the play it was based on. Cute, some funny moments that brought back scenes from movie. Feb 24, Greg rated it liked it Shelves: High School English class assignment. It was OK, but not what generally appeals to me.
