Center Players will explore love, marriage and infidelity as it launches its 2022-23 season with a production of Neil Simon’s Last of the Red Hot Lovers.
First produced on Broadway in 1969, the play centers around Barney Cashman, a married, middle-aged restaurant owner who wants to be part of the sexual revolution before it passes him by. Taking advantage of his mother's empty New York City apartment, he invites various women over for romantic trysts over the course of three afternoons, but his bumbling efforts result in uproarious situations.
The cast includes Michael Gonzalez (Manasquan), Precious Pia (Staten Island), Eileen Anglin (Barneget) and Lisa Vasfailo (Old Bridge). Roberta Fallon (Freehold) is Producer and Denise Warren (Freehold) is Stage Manager.
Celebrating its 21st season at Center Playhouse, Center Players is a respected, award-winning organization, presenting high quality, engaging productions featuring local talent in downtown Freehold. In addition to their signature plays, the group also sponsors free play reading events and offers dinner and theater packages with several local restaurants.
