Very sweet story about love among seniors. Both leads were great as was the actress playing the sister. The opera singer was lovely too.

Beautiful and tender look at life. A great evening of classic theater, with some excellent operatic arias to add to the color and pleasure.

Description

by Joe DiPietro

directed by Laird Williamson

Are you ever too old to find love? Life is suddenly a thrill again after 83-year-old Ralph takes a detour from his everyday routine and stumbles headlong into romance. As he attempts to woo the attractive and reluctant Carol with the persistence of a smitten teenager, he finds that love’s last round comes with its own set of obstacles. The hesitant couple must negotiate a jealous sibling, secrets from their past and their own fear of taking the plunge, yet again, as they embark on one more chance at love.

Joshua Jeremiah – The Young Man

Sharon Lockwood – Rose

Will Marchetti – Ralph

Kitty Winn – Carol
