Last of the Red Hot Lovers

Keystone Repertory Theater presents the Neil Simon comedy Last of the Red Hot Lovers this Thursday, May 30, through Saturday, June 1, 2013, at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, June 2, at 2:00 p.m. in Waller Hall Studio Theater. This is the first of five KRT productions this summer.

The comedy centers on three women, three afternoons, and three shots at living a dream. Barney Cashman is a middle-aged restaurant manager who has a very nice married existence. His only issue is that he wants a night living in Technicolor before it’s too late.

Barney is tired of existing; he wants to live. Maybe one afternoon of passion could be so exhilarating—so vivid—that the memory alone would sate his desire for more. IUP alumnus Nathaniel Moser directs this oft-overlooked early Simon work, revealing humanity in hilarious fashion.

Also coming from KRT this summer:

Jesus Christ Superstar, June 13–15, Mainstage

Forever Plaid, July 25–28, Gorell Recital Hall

Our Town, August 1–3, Mainstage

Tickets are available at the Hadley Union Building, by calling 724-357-1313, or at IUP Tickets. Remaining seats will be sold at the door starting 45 minutes before each performance.

Keystone Repertory Theater is produced through the Department of Theater and Dance of the College of Fine Arts. KRT is funded, in part, by the IUP Student Cooperative Association.
