Last of the Red Hot Lovers

Neil Simon Comedy!
Barney Cashman’s mother’s apartment is the less-than-romantic setting for Neil Simon’s romantic comedy, Last of the Red Hot Lovers. Be there as Barney attempts three clumsy seductions on our stage from April 7th – 15th!
Middle-aged, married, and overworked, Barney Cashman wants to join the sexual revolution before it's too late and arranges trysts with three women: the first proves to be a foul-mouthed bundle of neuroses, the next is a 20-ish actress who's too kooky by half, and the third is a gloomy, depressed housewife who happens to be married to Barney's best friend.
The play opened on Broadway in 1969 and was turned into a film starring Alan Arkin, Sally Kellerman, Paula Prentiss, and Renée Taylor. The New York Post called it "delightfully hilarious and witty, as well as filled with wisdom about human nature.”
The production is directed by Keith Langsdale, a Massachusetts-based director making his Lakes Region directorial debut.  It features NH-based actor Marc Willis as Barney.  A prolific actor in the Granite State, Marc just finished a run of Hairspray at the Palace Theatre and can often be found on the stage of the New London Barn Playhouse in the summer.  He is also a three-time winner of the New Hampshire Theatre Award for Best Acting categories. 
Marc is joined by Leigh Martha Klinger as Elaine, Elizabeth Nestlerode as Bobbi, and Molly Pietz Walsh as Jeanette.  Elizabeth is making her Playhouse debut, while Leigh and Molly return from last summer’s company where Leigh featured in the ensemble of Cabaret and Molly played Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Last of the Red Hot Lovers will run for eight performances, Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30pm and Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm.  Tickets cost between $16 and $27.  They can be ordered by calling (603) 279-0333 or online here:
