Red Eye of Love is a mad-cap musical love triangle that pits a young, forthright idealist against a wealthy, jaded materialist whose department store sells just one product: meat. They compete for the girl they love in a mythic New York City, against a background of 20th Century Boom Time, War and Depression.

Red Eye of Love began life as a straight play by Arnold Weinstein at The Living Theatre in 1961 and earned John Wulp an Obie Award as Best Director. Noted artist Robert Indiana contributed his set designs in 1998 when Wulp restaged the original play in Maine. It is these designs that are used in the current musical production of the play. Weinstein and Wulp began collaboration on a musical version, completing the book and lyrics just before Weinstein's death in 2005. Wulp and director Ted Sperling, whose production of The Other Josh Cohen for Amas in 2012 earned six Drama Desk Award Nominations, brought young composer Sam Davis aboard last year to complete the creative team.
