The Last of the Red Hot Lovers, which opens at the Ivoryton Playhouse tonight, June 6th and runs through June 24th, introduces audiences to Barney Cashman, a 47-year-old restaurateur, who decides he needs to take a break from his 23-year-old marriage. On three different afternoons, he brings women to his mother's apartment while she's at the hospital volunteering. Behind plentiful laughs is a tender portrayal of a decent fellow who just can't succeed in sinning.
R. Bruce Connelly* returns to Ivoryton to play the hopelessly faithful Barney Cashman. Bruce has performed at The Playhouse many times, most recently in the critically acclaimed production, THE PRODUCERS. Bruce will be joined by Playhouse veteran Beverley Taylor, Kate Hubbard* and Bonnie Black*
Directed by Maggie McGlone Jennings, the set design is by Rachel Reynolds, lighting design by Marcus Abbott, and costumes by LisaMarie Harry.
