BERLIN - â€śThe Last Romance,â€ť a story of laughter, heartbreak and love, is running at the Connecticut Cabaret Theatre through Feb. 3.
On a routine walk, widower Ralph (played by George Lombardo) decides to take a different path, which leads him to an unforeseen second chance at love. Ralph meets Carol (Barbara Horan), a distant but elegant woman, at a dog park and attempts to woo her.
Before he got married, Ralph had dreams of becoming an opera singer, and once Carol finds out about this passion, she invites him on a trip to Italy and a visit to La Scala opera house.
Ralphâ€™s younger sister Rose (Lori Feldman), with whom he lives, is a possessive, relentless, bitter nag who refuses to let him out of her sight. Once Rose learns about Ralphâ€™s newfound romance and trip across the ocean, chaos ensues.
â€śThe Last Romance,â€ť written by Joe DiPietro and directed by the theaterâ€™s artistic director and owner, Kris McMurray, runs every Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:15 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m.
