It's love on the lam in this NJ Premiere of a new comedy by Richard Dresser (Rounding Third)! When Mickey, a fugitive mobster from Boston, is forced into early retirement in Paris with his no-longer-young girlfriend, Jean, the couple runs into one hilarious situation after another-and discover shocking secrets about each other along the way. With its funny perspective on unconventional love and loyalty,The Last Days of Mickey & Jean is a retirement story with a twist!
