A comedic look at love in the golden years

"This crowd-pleasing play seems bound for Broadway and could be another Tony-nominated vehicle for Robbins."

Managing Maxine

by Janece Shaffer

directed by Marya Spring Cordes

September 6 – 23, 2012

She's bold, yet tender. She's brash, but sincere. And at the age of 70, Maxine Levine may have just found real love for the first time in her life. When this lively widow finds a retired, reserved judge to her liking, they each discover that when it comes to romance, everything old is new again. But the memories of past loves and current heartbreaks of their children could derail any hope of happiness these late-in-life lovebirds may have. It's the Midwest Premiere of a new comedy about septuagenarian sexiness and matronly merriment, with Broadway actress Jana Robbins as Maxine and television veteran Steve Vinovich as Arthur.

Running time: 2 hours, including one intermission
