Galloway, N.J. - America in the 1960s, an era that encouraged LOVE, was populated by “Mad Men” and “Mod Women” trying to navigate the new normal. In this freshly conceived production of Neil Simon’s classic, “Last of the Red Hot Lovers,” true comedy ensues when a modern man in the hip Sixties looks for something new and different, but ends up finding himself in the same situation, again and again…and again! This show is sure to have audiences laughing at the Stockton Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, March 8.
Show time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $32 and may be ordered online stockton.edu/pac or by calling the Box Office at (609) 652-9000. The Box Office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 90 minutes before the performance. For group sales, call (609) 652-4786.
Barney Cashman is middle-aged, married, overworked and overweight. It’s finally his turn to join the sexual revolution… before it's too late. With no experience in covert maneuvers, he attempts three trysts. His targets; a bawdy bundle of fun who likes smooth whiskey and other women’s husbands, a young actress too kooky for words, and a neurotic housewife who happens to be married to his best friend. And through all the mishaps and laughter, Barney begins to rediscover his humanity and what he thought was missing all along.
“Last of the Red Hot Lovers” had a lengthy run on Broadway and was made into a hit film starring Alan Arkin and Sally Kellerman.
