Feb. 15: Northern Stage presents ‘Last of Red Hot Lovers’

Written by Neil Simon, Last of the Red Hot Lovers runs live on stage at the Barrette Center for the Arts in White River Junction Feb. 15 to March 5. Tickets start at $15 for students and $30 for adults.

The comedy follows long-married Barney Cashman, a 47-year-old seafood restaurant owner, as he tries to have one passionate tryst before opportunity passes him by.

The production is recommended for ages 12 and up due to the subject matter. An optional post-show conversation with the company follows evening performances on Feb. 25 and 26 and March 2. Available for any performance are Anytime Student Tickets for $15 and Access for All tickets (for EBT card holders) for $5. Adult ticket prices range from $30 to 55. Feb. 21 is $20 Tuesday, a special discount night at the theater. A complimentary post-show reception with the cast follows the opening night performance on Saturday, Feb. 18.

In conjunction with the remainder of the 20th Anniversary Season, Northern Stage’s Barrette Center for the Arts is hosting an exhibition featuring the work of Linda Roesch (watercolors and ink), Heidi Reynolds (photographs), John Kantack (paintings), and Brian Walsh (hand-inked prints). The themes of this exhibition–“Ambition and Redemption”– are tied into Northern Stage’s 2016–17 season. Proceeds from the sale of most works on display will benefit Northern Stage’s annual operations and education programs.
