'Last of the Red Hot Lovers' at Festival 56
PRINCETON — The Festival 56 production of Neil Simon’s "Last of the Red Hot Lovers" plays through Nov. 30 at the Grace Center for Performing Arts, 316 S. Main St., Princeton. Performances are at 7:30 p.m.
In classic Neil Simon comedic style, "Last of the Red Hot Lovers" finds a rather dull, middle-aged restaurateur trying to get hip to the free love vibe of the late 1960s by arranging a series of affairs at his mother’s apartment. Matthew C. Scott, a familiar leading man to Festival 56 audiences ("Brigadoon," "She Loves Me," "The Sound of Music"), returns to lead the cast.
A special Festival 56 late-night cabaret will follow the performance on Nov. 29. Tickets to the cabaret, which begins at 10 p.m., are sold separately and can be purchased in advance at the Festival 56 Box Office or the night of the performance.
For tickets, visit www.festival56.com or call the Festival 56 Box Office, 815-879-5656, ext. 11. The box office is open from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and an hour before each performance.
The Grace Performing Arts Center is completely accessible and ample nearby parking is available.
