Richard Armitage, Amy Ryan & More Will Lead Mike Bartlett's LOVE, LOVE, LOVE; Michael Mayer Set to Direct
Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) is thrilled to announce the complete cast of Mike Bartlett's (King Charles III) new play, Love, Love Love, directed by Michael Mayer. The cast includes Richard Armitage (The Hobbit), Alex Hurt (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Zoe Kazan (The Seagull), Ben Rosenfield ("Boardwalk Empire") and two-time Tony nominee Amy Ryan ("The Office," A Streetcar Named Desire). The production is part of Roundabout's 50th Anniversary Season.
Love, Love, Love begins preview performances on September 22, 2016 and opens officially on October 19, 2016 at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. This is a limited engagement Off-Broadway through December 18, 2016.
It's the late 1960s in a north London flat, and Henry is excitedly anticipating the arrival of his date, Sandra. The night changes course when Sandra and Henry's brother Kenneth quickly realize how much they have in common-their love of Rock and Roll and their love of marijuana, for starters. A fiery relationship is sparked in the haze of the 60s, and charred by today's brutal realities. Fast forward twenty-three years, and the economy and politics of an ever-changing world are wearing on the marriage of this baby boomer couple. Can they remain faithful to each other while trying to provide a loving and supportive home for their children-children who are growing up in a time when the next generation is not always provided for? Spanning more than four decades, this dark comedy is the story of what happens when the free-loving teens of the 60s face the harsh realities of today's world. From passion to paranoia, Love, Love, Love takes on the baby boomer generation as it retires, and finds it full of trouble.
Roundabout welcomes Mike Bartlett following the critically acclaimed and celebrated Broadway debut of his play King Charles III. Tony Award-winning stage, film and opera director Michael Mayer returns to Roundabout to direct his sixth production (Uncle Vanya, The Lion in Winter). Mayer previously directed Amy Ryan in Uncle Vanya at Roundabout. She also appeared in RTC's production of A Streetcar Named Desire and was Tony-nominated for both performances.
