The Last Romance
Directed by Kris McMurray
January 5th thru February 3rd, 2018
A crush can make anyone feel young again. On an ordinary day in a routine life, a widower named Ralph,(George Lombardo), decides to take a different path on his daily walk, one that leads him to an unexpected second chance at love. Relying on a renewed boyish charm, Ralph attempts to woo the elegant, but distant, Carol, (Barbara Horan). Ralph embarks on the trip of a lifetime, and regains a happiness that seemed all but lost.
Widower Ralph who once had ambitions to be an opera singer but got married instead. He lives with his slightly younger sister Rose, (Lori Feldman) a possessive, relentless, bitter nag who is determined not to let him out of her sight. When Ralph spots the attractive, white-haired Carol at the local dog park, Ralph flirts, plays teasing games with Carol, and works hard to establish a relationship. Impressed with his love of opera, she invites him to accompany her on a trip to Italy and the fabled La Scala opera house. Needless to say, Rose is not pleased with this plan.
Joe DiPietro’s bittersweet romantic comedy directed by Connecticut Cabaret Theatre Artistic Director and Owner Kris McMurray brings to life this heartwarming play about the transformative power of love, with moments of heartbreak, humor, opera and laughter.
