Photo Flash: First Look at Jordan Gelber, Jennifer Cody and More in Hangar Theatre's LAST OF THE RED HOT LOVERS

Hangar Theatre kicked off its 2013 season on June 13th with Neil Simon's irresistible comedy Last of the Red Hot Lovers, which runs through June 29. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Featuring a stellar cast including three Broadway favorites, this seminal work is directed by Hangar Associate Artistic Director Jesse Bush. Last of the Red Hot Lovers had its original Broadway run from 1969-1971 and received four Tony nominations, including for Best Play.

The Hangar production features the talents of Jordan Gelber (Broadway's Avenue Q, All My Sons, Elf) as Barney Cashman, Jennifer Cody (Shrek, Urinetown) as Elaine Navazio, Leenya Rideout (Company, War Horse, Cabaret) as JeAnnette Fisher, and Natalie Walker as Bobbi Michele.

Last of the Red Hot Lovers follows the story of Barney Cashman, a seafood restaurateur who is deep in the throes of a mounting midlife crisis. It's 1969 and the sexual revolution is passing him by with alarming speed. But Barney is determined to catch up to the times, so he borrows his mother's empty apartment for a series of afternoon encounters. In three hilarious scenes, we witness Barney's attempts to discover his inner Don Juan with the help of an unlikely parade of possible partners. Can he seal the deal? What is it he is truly searching for?
