Performing at Andrews Living Arts Studio (Mar 14 - Apr 14)
Runtime: 2 Hours
Join us for the classic Neil Simon three-act comedy at Andrews Living Arts Studio.
Meet Barney Cashman. He's a middle-aged restaurant manager who has a very nice married existence. But he's tired of existing; he wants to live before it's too late. Maybe one afternoon of passion could be so exhilarating, so vivid, that the memory alone would sate his desire for more.
He encounters Elaine Navazio, a sexpot who likes cigarettes, whiskey, and other women's husbands; Bobbi Michele, an actress friend who he discovers is madder than a hatter; and Jeannette Fisher, his wife's best friend, a staunch moralist.
Three women, three afternoons, three shots at living in Technicolor.
"Mr. Simon has created a great character here. . . . It is extraordinarily funny and yet also charming. . . . He is as witty as ever, perhaps wittier" ~ N.Y. Times
"Delightfully hilarious and witty, as well as filled with wisdom about human nature . . . . An uproariously funny author. But he is far more than that. He has a mellow and compassionate understanding of how weak and essentially well meaning mankind behaves. . . . A genuinely brilliant play" ~ N.Y. Post
