'Last Of The Red Hot Lovers'

Comedy by Neil Simon
January 17-19 & January 23-26

Director: Janie Hale

Cast of Hot Lovers

t was Neil Simon at his vintage finest. The Last of the Red Hot Lovers was a sell out production for the Little Theatre of New Smyrna Beach almost from the day the box office opened. And the crowd of theater-goers weren't disappointed.

Kalaydjian & TiffanyHot Lovers is a three-act play that features a story about a Forty-ish man who decides to join the Sixties sexual revolution before it's too late. He tries having affairs with three different women in his mother's apartment with no success. First he takes on a sexpot, then a kooky actress friend, and then his wife's best friend. It's hilarious and witty, and filled with wisdom about human nature.

Linda Kalaydjian plays the sexpot, Elaine. Linda has appeared in previous productions at the LT as the mother in this season's Beau Jest and in There's a Burglar in My Bed. At the Daytona Playhouse she had roles in The Unexpected Guest, The Sensuous Senator and Play It Again, Sam.
