“The Last Romance” by Joe DiPietro is on stage at A.C.T. Studio Theatre March 3 – 18.
As Oscar Wilde said, “Men want to be a woman’s first love. Women like to be a man’s last romance.”
Ralph Bellini finds it’s never too late to fall in love when he takes a different path on his daily walk and discovers the lovely Carol. Despite the suspicions of his sister Rose, he develops a romantic friendship with Carol played out against smatterings of operatic arias drawn from his youthful memory of auditioning for the Metropolitan Opera. Can love thrive once you reach Social Security age? Why not? Let’s root for Ralph.
Written by acclaimed playwright Joe DiPietro (“Nice Work If You Can Get It;” “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change”), A.C.T.’s production of “The Last Romance” is directed by Gale Baker and stars Michael Beecher, Arlette Eulo and Arlene Love, with Aidan McDonnell as the young opera singer and Zoey as “Peaches the Pup.”
