In this Neil Simon comedy, Barney Cashman experiences a midlife crisis and decides that he needs to seduce some new women after 22 years of faithful marriage. The scene is set when this mildly successful restaurant owner realizes that his mother’s apartment is empty one full day of each week.
However, Cashman’s extra pounds, nerdy personality, and rusty pickup lines lead to some uproarious failures with the fairer sex.
The audience meets a cigarette-smoking, whiskey-drinking sexpot who gets a kick out of feasting on other women’s husbands. Strike one. Cashman then swings and misses with an absolutely insane actress. He strikes out with his wife’s best friend, a woman of high principles and morals.
Showtimes are March 10 at 8 p.m.; March 11 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and March 12 at 3 p.m. With the special discount, tickets are $37 for general admission and $20 for rear side seats.
The travelling troupe comes from the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia. Founded in 1809, Walnut Street is the oldest theater in the United States. Plus, it is believed to be the oldest continuously operating theater in the English-speaking world.
