LAST OF THE RED HOT LOVERS starring Jen Cody at Cape Playhouse Begins Performances Tonight!

Exciting news from the Cape! Broadway veterans Krysta Rodriguez, stage couple Hunter Foster and Jen Cody, Nick Spangler and Kaitlyn Davidson are all headed to Cape Playhouse for its 2016 summer season.

Neil Simon's LAST OF THE RED HOT LOVERS will feature Cody (SHREK THE MUSICAL) alongside Daniel Pearce (MACHINAL), June 7-18.

Simon's irresistible comedy follows the story of Barney Cashman, a seafood restaurateur who is deep in the throes of a midlife crisis. Bored with a humdrum existence, he musters the courage to join the sexual revolution before it's too late by embarking upon a series of attempts to seduce three eccentric women. America's favorite playwright brings together humanity and hilarity in a fun-?lled, bumpy ride of self-discovery as Barney grapples with how to start living a fuller life.

Rodriguez (SPRING AWAKENING) will star as 'Sally Bowles' in CABARET, helmed by Foster (THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY). Nick Spangler (THE BOOK OF MORMON) will take the stage as 'Cliff Bradshaw', with Kim David Smith set to play 'The Emcee'. CABARET will run August 9-20.

"Willkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome" sings the Emcee as he welcomes you into Berlin's infamous Kit Kat Klub, where Sally Bowles nightly performs to shut out the rising tide of Nazism. With arresting songs such as Maybe This Time, Wilkommen, Tomorrow Belongs to Me, and of course, CABARET -- this winner of 12 Tony Awards and 8 Academy Awards entices you to "leave your troubles outside" and experience the exotic world of CABARET.

James Brennan directs THE MUSIC MAN, starring local actor Jeremy Webb and Davidson (CINDERELLA), joined by a company of more than 30 performers, July 5-23.

One of the most beloved musicals of all-time makes its Playhouse debut at the center of its 90th Anniversary Season. For Harold Hill, there's a sucker born every minute. "Professor" Hill is selling marching bands -- teaching the River City children his patented "think system" way of learning to play. With rousing numbers such as Seventy-Six Trombones, The Wells Fargo Wagon, and Goodnight Ladies, Harold plans on skipping town with the cash before anyone's the wiser but he didn't count on falling for Marian, the town's librarian.

Michael Halling (A TALE OF TWO CITIES) takes the lead in Agatha Christie's THE MOUSETRAP from August 23-September 7.

On a snowy night at Monkswell Manor, young newlyweds welcome a group of strangers to their guest house, only to discover news of a murderer in their midst! A police investigation reveals the sordid details of each guest's mysterious past, but not soon enough to stop the killer from striking again. Agatha Christie's masterful whodunit weaves an intricate plot filled with nerve-rattling suspense, all leading up to the ultimate, final twist!

Also in the lineup are Lanford Wilson's TALLEY'S FOLLEY in June, followed by THE MAY QUEEN in July.
