Center Players will explore love, marriage and infidelity as it launches its 2022-23 season with a production of Neil Simon’s “Last of the Red Hot Lovers” at Center Playhouse, 35 South St., Freehold Borough, from Oct. 14-30.
First produced on Broadway in 1969, the play centers around Barney Cashman, a married, middle-aged restaurant owner who wants to be part of the sexual revolution before it passes him by, according to a press release.
