The Williamstown Theatre Festival production of Neil Simon's Last of the Red Hot Lovers, starring Brooks Ashmanskas, Heidi Schreck, Susie Essman and Leslie Bibb, begins performances July 11.

Jessica Stone (A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum) directs the comedy that runs through July 22.

The cast features Ashmanskas (Promises, Promises; Present Laughter) as Barney Cashman, Schreck (Circle Mirror Transformation) as Jeanette Fisher, Essman ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") as Elaine Navazio and Bibb ("Iron Man") as Bobbi Michele.

Here's how it's billed: "Meet Barney Cashman. He's a middle-aged restaurant manager who has a very nice married existence. But he's tired of existing; he wants to live — before it's too late. Maybe one afternoon of passion could be so exhilarating, so vivid, that the memory alone would sate his desire for more. Three women, three afternoons, three shots at living in Technicolor."



The creative team includes Alexander Dodge (scenic design), Philip Rosenberg (lighting design), Clint Ramos (costume design), Drew Levy (sound design) and Aaron Rhyne (projections design).
