Does romance have age boundaries? Find out in our spring production of Mixed Emotions, a gentle, yet hilarious romantic comedy by Richard Baer about a sixty-five-year-old widower's courtship of a sixty-one-year-old widow. Reviewers have called it: "Winsome wit and humanity. Very funny and touching." —UPI. "There is a sweetness to the play, a pleasant Life-assertiveness…" —NY Post. In this delightful, touching story Herman Lewis (a Jewish carpet dealer) and Christine Millman (an interior decorator and lapsed Catholic) have been friends for more than thirty years. When their respective mates were alive, the two couples saw each other constantly and often traveled together. As the play opens, Christine is preparing to move—tomorrow—from her apartment in New York City to Florida, where she will share an apartment with another widow. From out of the blue, Herman appears to request that she stay in the city and marry him. Christine thinks the idea is ridiculous, but Herman persists and tries to change her mind over the ensuing eighteen hours. The play's other characters are Ralph and Chuck, moving men who empty Christine's home while Herman doggedly pursues his courtship.
