Tony Award winner Joe DiPietro's The Last Romance, a romantic comedy written for Marion Ross and her longtime partner Paul Michael, started its West Coast premiere on July 30 at The Old Globe's Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre in San Diego.

Performances continue to Sept. 12, representing an extension of one week. Opening night is Aug. 5.

In addition to Ross and Michael, the cast of The Last Romance includes Patricia Conolly (as Rose Tagliatelle) and Joshua Jeremiah (as The Young Man). Richard Seer directs.

Here's how The Old Globe describes The Last Romance: "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."
