The Chagrin Valley Little Theatre's River Street Playhouse has added a performance of "The Last Romance" by Joe DiPietro on May 8 at 8 p.m.
"The Last Romance" is the story of Ralph (Don Edelman), an widower in his senior years who spots the slightly younger Carol (Mary Jane Nottage) walking her chihuahua (played by 'Diesel') at the local dog park. Impressed with the elegant and distant woman, Ralph decides to take a chance on love one more time by pursuing her. His lonely sister and caretaker, Rose (Margo Parker), does not approve. Carol isn't particularly interested in Ralph at first, but they soon bond as Ralph tells her about his missed chance to sing for the Metropolitan Opera (with vocalist Andrew Kondik appearing as young Ralph), and Carol tells him of her husband, disabled by a stroke.
The show can be seen through May 10, with performances on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m., with a Sunday matinee on May 4 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended.
Tickets for all CVLT productions can be purchased online at CVLT.org or by phone at 440-247-8955 between 1 and 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
