On an ordinary day in a routine life, an 80-year-old widower named Ralph decides to takes a different path on his daily walk – one that leads him to an unexpected second chance at love. Relying on a renewed boyish charm, Ralph attempts to woo the elegant, but distant, Carol. Defying Carol’s reticence – and the jealousy of his lonely sister Rose – he embarks on the trip of a lifetime and regains a happiness that seemed all but lost. The Last Romance is a heart-warming comedy about the transformational power of love.

Joe DiPietro, the writer of The Last Romance, recently won two Tony Awards for co-writing Memphis, which also received the 2010 Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical. His other plays and musicals include, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change (the longest-running musical revue in Off Broadway history) and the much-produced comedy, Over the River and Through the Woods.
