Last of the Red Hot Lovers
Middle-aged and married Barney Cashman, skillfully played by Pearland resident Jeff Merriman, wants to experience “one affair, one day of pleasure and that’s all!” His seductions don’t, however, turn out quite as expected and instead lead him into the craziness of Neil Simon’s classic comedy hit.
Elaine Navazio, played by League City actress Jean Ciampi, proves to be a liberated, intense handful. Her cough, cravings and carnal knowledge are way out of Barney’s league. Pearland’s Sara Denton is charmingly convincing as the effervescent Bobbi Michele, a 20-something actress too kooky by twice. Finally, Jeanette, who happens to be married to Barney’s best friend, is his third at bat. Bacliff actress Caroline McDonald brings Jeanette to life, going toe-to-toe with Barney to answer the questions he is really asking.
Will one brief afternoon change the pattern of Barney’s life or just drive him nuts? Neil Simon has masterfully woven the laughable moments of real life together into a relatable and endearing tapestry for a show that must not be missed!
