One Set — A living/dining room in a New York apartment

“A desperate dash to the Clare Rose Playhouse for laughs. Missing a chance to see this would be a mistake.” — Charley Grant, Long Island Advance

“A sweet, wacky look at the romantic misadventures of two intensely human people. LAST CHANCE ROMANCE impresses.” — Paul Boeblert, Ilion Observer Dispatch
